T he International scientific symposium Days of Justinian I is an annual interdisciplinary

scholarly forum aimed at the presentation of the latest research followed by discussions on
various aspects of Byzantine and Medieval Studies, that include the treatment and interpretation
of cultural, historical and spiritual heritage in contemporary Europe. The Symposium is dedicated
to Emperor Justinian I with the aim to address a broad range of issues related to Byzantium and
the European Middle Ages, comprising the exploration of the cultural and historical legacy as an
integrative component of the diversities and commonalities of Unified Europe.
