THE AIMS OF PORPHYRA
Porphyra publishes and divulges articles and essays of high scientific value, always approved by a committee of the most esteemed academic members worldwide. Master degree or PhD are the criteria required to publish, along with thorough research, passion and method. Our aim is to contribute to the transimission of an accurate knowledge and perception of what Byzantine culture was, and of its connections with both, our past and our present. We also aim at fostering the awareness of how much our culture has inherited from the Eastern Roman Empire.
