Przemyslaw Marciniak, Greek Drama in Byzantine Times, Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Slaskiego, Katowice 2004

In this study, the author demonstrates how Byzantine drama functioned in the Byzantine society. Though it was not staged anymore, ancient drama became an important part of Byzantine education, as well as remained an object of research conducted by Byzantine scholars. This, alongside the fact that Byzantine writers employed motifs, quotations and allusions taken from ancient drama, prove that ancient theatre was considered to be an important part of Byzantine self-identification.
