  • Joel Kalvesmaki, editor in Byzantine Studies, has coedited (with Robin Darling Young) Evagrius and His Legacy, now available from University of Notre Dame Press. The book grew out of a 2011 round table hosted by Dumbarton Oaks. David Brakke writes, “Joel Kalvesmaki, Robin Darling Young, and their colleagues have been leading a renaissance in the study of Evagrius of Pontus. . . . A collection that ranges as widely as its subject’s fertile mind.”
  • The Online Seals Catalogue has been named in Oxford Bibliographies Online’s entry on “Seals,” which remarks:

The Dumbarton Oaks website pools together and offers easy access to vast resources essential to the study of Byzantine seals, including the Online Catalog of the seal collection . . .; a regularly updated bibliography; and two instructive expositions, one devoted to imperial seals, the other to a rare motif in Byzantine seal iconography: narrative scenes from the New Testament. . . . The permanent exhibit devoted to “Leaden Gospels” superbly explores seals as expressions of faith and of the ways that the Byzantines related to the New Testament.
