An exhibition comprising icons, vestments and precious heirlooms on loan from the Municipal Art Gallery will be on display at the Museum of Byzantine Culture in Thessaloniki. The items are shown alongside texts which present and explain the most recent findings on Byzantine painting in northern Greece.
The exhibition is the result of a combinative study of items belonging to the collections of both the Museum of Byzantine Culture and the Municipal Art Gallery. Its aim is to link these items to the socioeconomic context of the years that followed Constantinople’s fall.
Entrance is free.
