Vasyl Hryhorovyc-Bars'kyj was an eighteenth century traveller who documented his journeys around Cyprus. His accounts are incredibly detailed and describe churches, monasteries and religious life on the island. He wrote as an insider, despite originating from Kiev; his primary interest being that of the Orthodox religious life that he found on the island.
Professor Alexander Grishin is based at the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences and has been published extensively and prolifically in his research areas of nineteenth and twentieth century contemporary art, medieval and Byzantine art, Russian art, art theory and curation. He has written many publications on the travels of Byzantine monk Bars'kyj.
