“The 10th APECSS conference was held at University for Aerospace Instrumentation in St Petersburg, Russia, from 9-11 September, 2016. The conference theme was ‘Survival of Early Christian Traditions’. We were delighted to have Prof. Sergey Ivanov, from National Research University, Moscow, as a keynote speaker at the conference delivering his paper entitled ‘The Survival of Extravagant Saintliness in the Mid-Byzantine Period’. Not only were the regular members of APECSS well represented among the presenters and participants at the conference, but it was wonderful to see several Belgian, Finnish, French, Greek, Hungarian, UK, and Japanese early career scholars join us as well.
The conference was a great success. Let us thank the organisers of our conference at St Petersburg, for their efforts in bringing us together for an enjoyable meeting, most especially Dr. Basil Lourie and Dr. Xenia Mitrenina. As well, the Society has to extend the gratitude to the Russian convenors, Dr. Julia Antokhina, Rector of SUAI, and Dr. Konstantin Losev, Vice-Rector for International Affairs of SUAI”.
