Studien zur byzantinischen Geschichte und Kultur / Studies in Byzantine History and Culture

Since the inauguration of Constantinople in 330, the centre of the Roman Empire shifted to the eastern half of the Mediterranean, where it existed until the 15th century. Constantine I (the Great) remained for centuries the reference point in the self-image and politics of the Eastern Roman or Byzantine emperors. The political system was still based on Roman traditions, although it underwent transformation processes different to those in the western parts of Europe. The empire with its centre on the Golden Horn served as a role model until the High Middle Ages, acting as a bridge to the Arab world and exerting a strong influence on developments in pre-modern history.

The series, in which individual studies as well as interdisciplinary collective works appear, addresses questions of the cultural, literary and intellectual history of the Byzantine millennium.

Publishing information

Please send manuscript submissions to our acquisition managers or to the editor of the series. Submissions must be original texts (no translations) which must not be previously published. During the review process, manuscripts may not be submitted elsewhere. Monographs must be complete and fully finished. For multi-authored volumes contact us as early as possible with details of the planned contributions. In initial submissions, our publication guidelines or citation rules do not have to be strictly followed.

All submissions are subjected to peer review. The review process can result in acceptance, the recommendation of revisions or rejection of the project. You will be informed of the decision by email. We attempt to reach a decision within 3 months of the submission of the manuscript.

Your manuscript has been accepted for Anthusa, you have your publishing contract in your hand, and now you would like to know what happens next? Here you can download a guide which will give you an overview of the book-making process and information on the citation styles of our series. Every project is different, however, and we prefer tailor-made solutions to standardisation down to the last detail. So, if you have any questions, please write to us or give us a call.
