Even with modern norms of scientific exchange the communication between scholars from different fields is still quite rare. The period of Late Antiquity is the time of transformation and the establishment of new institutions, literary genres, the time of shaping a new social and cultural environment. Improving scientific dialogue and stimulating joint activities are key for the study of such complex and interrelated issues.

That is why we set up a team of researchers from all Balkan countries (archaeologists, historians, art historians, theologians, philologists) with main interest in the field of Late Antiquity (4th–7th c.). Our long-term goal is establishing a network for the study of Late antiquity in Central and Southeast Europe.

In order to achieve the proposed goals and objectives we intend to organize different types of meetings both within the scientific community and with wide range of interested parties – public lectures, discussion seminars and international conferences.
