Many of the great cities and monuments of Early Christian, Byzantine and larger Orthodox and Eastern Christian world are recognized by UNESCOs World Heritage program, and have been protected by international non-profit NGOs such as ICOMOS or the World Monuments Fund. SomeareprotectedbyStateortheirownreligiousinstitutions. Manysuchsitesareendangered, either by urban growth, neglect, or even war. Most challenging to preserve are living cities. In this assignment, I would like you to see how the Early Christian, Byzantine and Orthodox world heritage is cared for in a specific place, and to research it in light of what weve been learning. This is also meant as an opportunity for you to learn more about specific sites or regions that interest you, many of which we will not be covering in class due to time limitations.
