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.

This folder holds the following references to publications, sorted by year and author.

There are 1560 references in this bibliography folder.
