Aural Architecture: Music, Acoustics, and Ritual in Byzantium

 Onassis Seminar "Icons of Sound: Architecture, Acoustics and Ritual in Byzantium" nnnThis year-long seminar explores the creation and operations of sacred space in Byzantium by focusing on the intersection of architecture, acoustics, music, and ritual. Through the generous support of the Onassis Foundation (USA), we will invite nine leading scholars in the field to share their research and conduct the discussion of their pre-circulated papers. The goal is to develop a new interpretive framework for the study of religious experience and assemble the research tools needed for work in this interdisciplinary field.
