The Assemani Seminar for Eastern Catholic History is a series of online events that aims to create a common platform for conversation between scholars interested in the history of various Eastern Catholic communities from the Middle Ages until today. The main goal of this initiative is to enable exchange between scholars specialised in different periods and regions, most prominently the ones studying the Eastern European Uniates/Greek Catholics and experts in the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern communities of non-Latin Catholics and other Christians. Each seminar will take place in a roundtable format with two or three informal presentations followed by a general discussion.




Online – via Zoom (the link will be disseminated by email after registration).
