Much of the Center's work, at both faculty and student levels, impinges inevitably on the Byzantine field.  Dr Susan Wessel of the School of Theology and Religious Studies, biographer of Cyril of Alexandria, exemplifies our potential for overlap.  CUA is also noted for its scholarship in the Syriac and Coptic spheres, presided over by Professor Sidney Griffith and Dr Janet Timbie.  We have a wealth of material in the library of our Institute for Christian Oriental Research, which includes manuscripts, papyri, and ostraka, together with substantial electronic resources. Thanks to the work of the Librarian, Dr Monica Blanchard, and of our visiting Research Fellow, Dr Chrysi Kotsifou, important improvements have been made recently in the conservation, cataloguing, and publication of this material.  Our Department of Greek and Latin also has a close interest in the early Christian field, and much of its philological work is directed towards the study of Patristic documents, both Greek and Latin.  Finally, our close working relationship with Dumbarton Oaks and other universities in the DC area, and the proximity of the Library of Congress, make CUA an ideal place to pursue research.

Full accounts of faculty research and teaching, together with our other activities, are available on or linked to the Center website: http://csec.cua.edu.

The History Department has a strong concentration in late antique and Byzantine studies in cooperation with the Department of Classics and the Center for Greek Studies and drawing on the resources of diverse faculty from the Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies.  Our particular strengths are Late Antiquity, Byzantine Christianity, and Byzantium and the Slavs.  Besides graduate seminars and advanced undergraduate courses on Byzantine-related topics, we have an active graduate Byzantine Greek reading group and a cluster of MA and PhD students working on Byzantine topics.  In recent years one faculty member and one doctoral student have won fellowships at Dumbarton Oaks.
