Scientific Publications

The scientific work of the Institute is reflected in its publications. The publishing activity of the Institute began a few years after its founding, in 1962, with the publication of the annual scientific journal “Thesaurismata” and with the publication of the catalog of the collection of images of the Institute compiled by Manolis Hatzidakis (Icônes de Saint-Georges des Grecs et de la collection del’Institut Hellénique de Venise). From 1962 until today the Hellenic Institute numbers 48 volumes of “Thesaurismata” and over 100 editions of books distributed in the various series such as Library, Greek-Latin East, Sources, Conferences, Thomas Flanginis, Activity Reports, etc.
