About the Lecture

The final Hellenic Seminar Series lecture for Spring 2024 will examine a richly-illustrated Byzantine narrative of the twelfth century (Vaticanus graecus 1162) containing six sermons composed by the monk Iakovos of the Kokkinobaphou Monastery in Constantinople on the apocryphal early life of the Virgin Mary. More specifically, it will focus on the visual enactment of Adam’s lament over the loss of paradise and discuss the role of ‘performativity’ in both verbal and visual constituents of the narrative.
