Summary/Abstract: The present volume comprises the individual works of researchers associated with the Centrum Badań nad Literaturą i Recepcją Bizancjum Uniwersytetu Śląskiego [The Centre of Research in the Literature and the Reception of Byzantium at the University of Silesia]. The authors include both the employees of the Centre and guest contributors from the United States and France, who collaborate with the Katowice-based centre. “Miscellanea I” is the first fruit of the NCN project conducted in the Centre entitled “Historia intelektualna dwunastowiecznego Bizancjum – przejęcie i przekształcenie literatury antycznej” [“The intellectual history of the 12-century Byzantium – the adoption and the transformation of ancient literature”]. The various articles contained in the collection (hence the title – Miscellanea) focus above all on the problem of the reception of the ancient culture and literature in Byzantium, ranging from the work of John Malalas (6th c.), the works of distinguished 12th-century scholars and writers (Theodore Prodromos and Eustathius of Thessalonica) to the politically-engaged output of a late Byzantine philosopher, Gemistos Plethon.
