Byzantine garment
The Hellenic Costume Society welcomes Dr. Pari Kalamara for a series of four lectures on Byzantine clothing. The first two lectures introduce the tools at our disposal for approaching Byzantine clothing and the parameters for decoding its ‘language’. Namely, these parameters include:

- the technological and economic framework of production of textiles and clothing

- the definition, possibilities and constraints of a non-verbal language

- the mediators of the information on clothing

- the communicating parts, especially during the Byzantine period

- the fields that throw light on Byzantine clothing, with special reference to the imaginative.
