Moving away from the traditional trend, the conference aimed at proposing a comparative examination of Eastern Mediterranean monasticism during the period following the Fourth Crusade to the consolidation of Ottoman power, by bringing together scholars specializing in establishments of both the Orthodox and Latin traditions.The online discussion focused on important aspects of the two types of monasticism to showcase points of convergence and difference between them, and how they were affected by their co-existence in both the Byzantine territories and the region generally.

The conference was held virtually on 1-2 October 2020. The conference proceedings are expected to be published by the Institute of Historical Research.
