Chairman, Professor Aune JääskinenLogo

The Finnish National Committee for Byzantine Studies (Suomen Bysanttikomitea ry), founded in August 1991, serves as an informal meeting place and forum for discussions for scholars, artists, art collectors and others in Finland inspired by the Byzantine cultural heritage. Its members include university teachers and researchers in the humanities, theologians, icon painters, museum staff and librarians.
Its annual programme comprises lectures, discussion meetings and journeys abroad and within Finland, all on themes connected with Byzantine history and tradition extending from the late Classical perod up to the present day.
