‘Byzantium & the Arabs’ exhibition at Thessaloniki’s Museum of Byzantine Civilisation

ANA-MPA noteworthy exhibition entitled “Byzantium and the Arabs” will commence in late September at Thessaloniki’s Museum of Byzantine Civilisation, following approval on Wednesday by the Central Archaeological Council (KAS).

From ANA-MPA.gr

The approval paves the way for the temporary loaning out of artifacts and objects by ephorates and museums around the country.

The goal of the exhibition — Sept. 30, 2011 to Jan. 31, 2012 — is to highlight the mostly peaceful aspects of the two civilisations and the interaction between Byzantium and the Arabs, from the 7th A.D. until the fall of Constantinople in 1453.

The exhibition inaugurates the “Thessaloniki – Crossroads of Civilisations” programme, and ranks as a unique, by Greek standards, museum event.
