The site of the ongoing project to catalogue the 17,000 Byzantine seals in the Dumbarton Oaks Collection.

An annotated collection of free and open source books, journals, and more related to the study of Syriac. This resource was originally hosted on Dumbarton Oaks’ website and called “Resources for Syriac Studies.” In summer 2015, the resource migrated to the University of Oklahoma, where it is currently hosted. 

Bibliography on Gender in Byzantium

This resource started out as a bibliography on women in Byzantium, begun by Thalia Gouma-Peterson and maintained by Alice-Mary Talbot. Work on women’s history has recently been supplemented by studies on eunuchs, and a concern for masculinity, which together enable work on the Byzantine gender system.

Online version of the Dumbarton Oaks Hagiography Database, originally released in 1998.

Translations of Byzantine Saints' Lives

A list of translations of Byzantine saints' lives listed both alphabetically and chronologically.
