  • [01] Medevial Art of Serbia exhibition at Byzantine Museum

    ANA-MPA/A show containing 11th to 14th century painting and objects from Serbia - some leaving their country for the first time - hosted at the Byzantine and Christian Museum in Athens will conclude on September 15 after two tours are offered for the public on September 1 and 15.

    The exhibit is jointly organised by the Greek museum and the National Museum of Belgrade, currently undergoing a redesign of its exhibitions.

    "The objects are important because they showcase the beginnings of the Serbian state and of the archbishopric of Serbia...proving the very close relations Serbia had with Byzantium and the West. It is therefore extremely interesting that the Greek public will be able to see these objects," Byzantine Museum director Anastasia Lazaridou said.

    The exhibit consists of four sections, in four corresponding rooms, starting chronologically with the Nemanja Dynasty (1166-1371), who patronised the arts. Dynasty founder Stefan Nemanja established the state of Serbia before becoming a monk on Mt Athos, where he built the Hilandar Monastery.

    The show includes objects associated with the Serbian rulers, models of two important Serb monasteries and icons, one of which was made in a workshop of Thessaloniki, and high-grade copies of frescoes.

    Visitors with museum entrance tickets can join either of two Sunday tours of the small but important exhibit, on September 1 by Dr. Irini Theocharopoulou and on September 15 by Sofia Gerogiorgi. Both begin at 12:00 and reservations are necessary at the Museum telephone line, 213 213 9572 (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.).
