Nikos Livanos

Events & Communications Manager

Nikos studied Medieval and Modern Greek Literature at the University of Athens and History at the University of Thessaly, Volos. He is research associate of the Institute of Historical Research (initially of the former Institute of Byzantine Research) of the National Hellenic Research Foundation in Athens, Greece.

He has worked on a number of research projects concerning the archives and libraries of Mount Athos and the monastery of Patmos, as well as the Project NARSES (Nature and Religion in South-East European Space). His main research interests focus on the study of the history of Mount Athos and Orthodox monasticism mainly through Byzantine and post-Byzantine archival sources, the study of sources reflecting the development of collective memory and the formation of sacred space in Byzantine and post- Byzantine Orthodox monasticism, as well as the perceptions of Nature and Science in Orthodox Christianity, particularly after the 14th century.
