The museological journal ILISSIA
The Byzantine and Christian Museum has been publishing ILISSIA, a biannual museological journal published in separate English and Greek editions, since 2007. ILISSIA seeks to contribute to the debate on issues affecting museum professionals in Greece and internationally.
As such, its articles on different aspects of museum activities, special focus issues, presentations of museums, and reviews of conferences and books aim to foster the exchange of views and ideas and to create a forum where museum theory can meet museum practice.
The journal was named after the Villa Ilissia, the winter residence Stamatis Kleanthes built for Sophie de Marbois, Duchess of Plaisance, on the banks of the Ilissos River in 1848, which has been the Museum’s home since 1930.
