Associate Professor Peers earned his Ph.D. in the History of Art from The Johns Hopkins University, and, while on leave in 2000-2001, he earned a Licentiate in Medieval Studies from the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies in the University of Toronto. He has published on the theoretical aspects of Byzantine art, as well as on theological and hagiographical problems. His work, Subtle Bodies: Representing Angels in Byzantium, (2001) was published by The University of California Press; this book was a runner-up for the Robert W. Hamilton Co-op Book Award in 2002. Peers’ examination of frames and framing in Byzantine art, Sacred Shock: Framing Visual Experience in Byzantium, was published by Penn State University Press in 2004. Current projects include Christian-Muslim interaction in medieval Egypt, philhellenism in Renaissance France, and Byzantium and modernism. He is serving on the Boards of the Canadian Archeological Institute at Athens, the American School of Classical Studies at Athens and the Byzantine Studies Conference.
