Starting from October 2019, the Centre for Early Medieval Studies is honored to have established an advisory board composed of international and confirmed scholars of the field of art history.

The main objective of this board is to provide mentorship and advice regarding the scientific and publishing activities of the Centre. Since the Centre, now seven years old, and its periodical Convivium, have made an integral part of the study and research process to share ideas and experiences, the gatherings of the board will be also be an occasion for scholars to regularly meet in Brno, and, on those occasions, to organize authentic convivia.
