International Association of Byzantine Studies

International Association of Byzantine Studies (French: Association Internationale des Études Byzantines, AIEB) was launched in 1948. It is an international co-ordinating body that links national Byzantine Studies member groups.[1] [2]

Background and ActivitiesEdit

The AIEB was established in 1948 as an outgrowth of various international Byzantine Studies congresses with the goal of coordinating activities amongst different local and regional Byzantine Studies associations.[3] Since 1964, it has published a bulletin, the Bulletin d'information et de coordination,[4] and in 2017, it began releasing a monthly newsletter, Byzantine News.[5] The AIEB also oversees a number of commissions that support and promote areas of specialised research. Such commissions include the Corpus Fontinum Historiae Byzantinae, Inscriptiones Graecae Aevi Byzantini, the AIEB Development Commission, the Commission for the History of Byzantine Art, the Commission for the Historical Geography and Spatial Analysis of Byzantium, the Commission for Byzantine Archaeology, and the Commission for Byzantine Sigillography.[6][7][8]
