Studies in Late Antiquity and Early Islam (SLAEI Series)


Lawrence I. Conrad and Jens Scheiner, Editors


    This highly acclaimed scholarly series arises from a long-term interdisciplinary research project, “Late Antiquity and Early Islam,” that focuses on the relations among the cultures of the eastern Mediterranean from the death of Justinian in A.D. 565 to the fall of the Umayyad dynasty in the mid-eighth century. The project, directed by Dr. Lawrence I. Conrad and Prof. Dr. Jens Scheiner, brings together scholars from different disciplines and encourages an interdisciplinary approach by holding workshops, conducting research on particular sources and issues, and sponsoring a program of publications. The series constitutes a basic resource for all those interested in late antiquity and Byzantium, early Islam and eastern Christianity, and Byzantine and Islamic archaeology and art history.
