The exhibition is dedicated to great German archaeologist Theodor Wiegand marking its 150th birthday in 2014.

Theodor was an archaeologist devoted to Byzantine Art but also the director of the Collection of Classical Antiquities in Berlin and of the German Archaeological Institute.

For many years he helped the Berlin Museum to acquire Byzantine monuments, reliefs, liturgical objects, capitals friezes and small objects from archaeological excavation at Pergamon, Priene, Miletus and Didyma.

Thanks to his commitment Berlin now has the largest collection of Byzantine stone sculptures outside the former territory of the Byzantine Empire.

The exhibition shows his key role and sheds light on the famous archaeologist's abiding interest in the art and culture of Byzantium.
