Although the early medieval period is one of great significance for the history of medieval Greece, its systematic study began comparatively late, and only as a reaction to the theories of the German journalist Jakob Philipp Fallmerayer. The obsessive preoccupation with the problem of ethnic continuity may be at least in part responsible for the lack of interest in any other aspect of the history of early medieval Greece. The foundation of the Ecole Française d’Athènes, the Imperial (later German) Institute in Athens, the American School of Classical Studies, and the British School of Archaeology at Athens had a great impact on the study of the “Middle Byzantine” period in Greece, while Greek contributions focused primarily on sigillography and numismatics.
