BA in History and Archaeology (Nicosia), MA in Religious Studies (Cardiff)
Born in Limassol, Cyprus, I studied at Cyprus University at the School of Philosophy and Philological Studies at the department of History and Archaeology. As a postgraduate student I continued my studies in Wales, at Cardiff University attending a Masters programme at the School of Religious and Theological Studies obtaining an MA in Religion in Late Antiquity. My Masters dissertation dealed with Byzantine religious aspects in the 15th century that caused the fall and collapse of the Byzantine capital Constantinople which finally conquered by the Ottomans in 1453.
