The Gennadius Library is inviting you to a memorial for the late Robert G. Ousterhout, a world expert on Byzantine art and architecture and a great friend of the Gennadius Library and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.

A professor devoted to his students, a prolific scholar committed to understanding every minute construction detail, a considerate mentor to students and colleagues alike, an enthusiastic and erudite guide on the field, a keen proponent of faithful restauration, Professor Ousterhout dedicated many years of his life to the restauration of Byzantine monuments in Constantinople, to the exploration of the landscape and monuments of Cappadocia, and to the investigation of the development of Byzantine art and architecture in both regional and global contexts.

Charalambos Bakirtzis, Maria Georgopoulou, Eunice Dauterman Maguire and Henry Maguire, Stratis Papaioannou, Scott Redford, Brian Rose and Bonna Wescoat as well as friends, students and colleagues from Greece and the United States will come together in Athens to celebrate his life and reflect on his legacy.
