AbstractThe research programme Moving Byzantium highlights the role of Byzantium as a global culture and analyses the internal flexibility of Byzantine society. It aims to contribute to a re-evaluation of a society and culture that has traditionally been depicted as stiff, rigid, and encumbered by its own tradition. This is achieved by the exploration of issues of mobility, micro-structures, and personal agency. In this session, the mobility of individuals, technologies, religious discourses, and imperial ideas is discussed for Byzantium's 'Near East' in the Levant and Egypt as well as far beyond the Mediterranean in a comparative case study on political imaginations in medieval Korea.
