ExhibitGod's Regents on Earth: A Thousand Years of Byzantine Imperial Seals
by Jonathan Shea published Aug 22, 2012 last modified Jun 28, 2013 10:29 AM — filed under: , , , ,
For over a thousand years the Byzantine Emperor ruled as God's regent of earth. The decisions of the individuals who sat on the throne had repercussions throughout the Byzantine world and far beyond. Decrees, letters, judgments, and commands left Constantinople every day signed by the emperor in red ink and secured with the imperial seal. The designs of the imperial seals provide an insight into the minds and policies of the rulers whose image they bore; they tell us not only how they wished to be viewed by the recipients of their letters, but also how they viewed themselves.

ExhibitThe Ancient Future: Mesoamerican and Andean Timekeeping
by Sarah Burke Cahalan published Oct 03, 2012 last modified Apr 17, 2013 02:33 PM — filed under: , , , , , ,
The Aztec, Maya, and Inca civilizations used complex and multiple timekeeping systems for purposes of agriculture, worship, and political authority. Because little of the material record of the pre-Conquest peoples of the Americas survived, scholars through the ages have had limited primary sources to study to reach a comprehensive understanding of timekeeping in the Americas.
