Balzan Report
22 March 2017
The Syriac World Rediscovered: an Interview with Peter Brown and David Michelson is a portal that uses a single on-line framework to explore all of the constituent aspects of Syriac culture and put them back together again. Although a significant part of late antiquity in the Middle East, this culture has not been as well-studied as others.
Fruit of meticulous interdisciplinary work that combines geography, history, philology, religion and hagiography, is the cornerstone upon which Peter Brown’s Balzan Research Project entitled Figures in a Landscape has been built.

Peter Brown, 2011 Balzan Prize for Ancient History, and David Michelson, project leader, illustrate this innovative form of historical-cultural "corpus" in an >> INTERVIEW by Susannah Gold.
