Proceedings of the 12th International Congress of Cretan Studies Online

Proceedings of the 12th International Congress of Cretan Studies Online
ISBN: 978-960-9480-35-2
The 12th International Congress of Cretan Studies (12th ICCS) was held in Heraklion from 21 to 25 September 2016 and organised by the Society of Cretan Historical Studies. The Congress was divided into three parallel sections corresponding to Antiquity, the Medieval period and the Modern period, along the thematic axis of mobility of people, ideas, and goods, to, from and within the island of Crete. A total of 319 original presentations were made by Greek and foreign scholars specialising in a variety of disciplines. The languages of the Congress are Greek, English, French, German and Italian. 

The online publication of the Proceedings of the 12th International Congress of Cretan Studies is organised by the Society of Cretan Historical Studies with the generous support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The papers will be uploaded gradually within four months of their submission, following a review, editing and formatting process. The publication is expected to be completed by mid-2018. 

Since its establishment by the Society of Cretan Historical Studies (SCHS) in 1961, the International Congress of Cretan Studies has been held every five years in the capital of each of the four Prefectures of Crete in turn. The International Congresses of Cretan Studies has been a platform for important presentations on archaeology, history, literature, ethnology, linguistics and other fields and their Proceedings continue to play a vital role in the study of Cretan history and culture.
