It is the first volume of the sub-series Byzantinisches Archiv - Series Philosophica dedicated to the study of Byzantine philosophical texts. Byzantine Perspectives on Neoplatonism Byzantine intellectuals not only had direct access to Neoplatonic sources in the original language but also, at times, showed a particular interest in them.

Byzantine philosophy refers to the distinctive philosophical ideas of the philosophers and scholars of the Byzantine Empire, especially between the 8th and 15th centuries.
