Festschrift in Honor of
Professor Johannes Koder

On the occasion of the 75th birthday of Professor Dr. Johannes Koder the project leaders of the Long-Term Project Tabula Imperii Byzantini (TIB) at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Prof. Dr. Andreas Külzer and Doz. Dr. Mihailo Popović (both Institute for Medieval Research, Division of Byzantine Research), have invited 21 renowned scholars from the academic fields of Historical Geography, Archaeology, Geography and Cartography to write contributions. The result is an edited volume (“Festschrift”) entitled “Space, Landscapes and Settlements in Byzantium. Studies in Historical Geography of the Eastern Mediterranean”.

The edited volume has been published as volume 1 of the series “Studies in Historical Geography and Cultural Heritage”. This series was founded by Mihailo Popović in the spring of 2016 and is edited by Andreas Külzer and Mihailo Popović in order to innovate the historical-geographical research in Byzantine Studies. The series is printed by the publishing house Akademska Knjiga in Novi Sad. The Festschrift was solemnly presented to Professor Dr. Johannes Koder on 2 March 2018 in the Sitzungssaal of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in the centre of Vienna. The festive programme was followed by a reception of all guests, which was generously provided by Professor Koder.
