Vera von Falkenhausen (born 1938) is a German Byzantinist who lives and works in Italy.

Life

Vera von Falkenhausen pursued Byzantine studies at the University of Munich, where she made her thesis in 1966 under Hans-Georg Beck. She then spent the years 1968–70 at the Dumbarton Oaks Center for Byzantine Studies in Washington, D.C. on a scholarship.[1] Since 1970 she has been a member of the German Historical Institute in Rome. Since 1974 she has been active as a professor of Byzantine history and literature at the universities of Pisa, Basilicata (Potenza), Chieti, and finally at Rome Tor Vergata. Since 2007 she is a professor emerita.

Her field of research are the various aspects of Byzantine rule in southern Italy and Sicily. Much of her work has been devoted to the analysis and critical edition of Greek primary sources. Since 2006 she is the editor of the Archivio storico per la Calabria e la Lucania, founded in 1931 by Paolo Orsi and Umberto Zanotti Bianco, on behalf of the Associazione Nazionale per gli Interessi del Mezzogiorno d'Italia. In addition, she is a member of the scientific advisory council of the journal Nea Rhome, founded in 2004.[2]

From 2010 to 2012 she was the chair of the Associazione Italiana di Studi Bizantini.
