Dimitrios Pallas: a Seafarer on the “Thalassa” of the Churches
GREECE, 1990, 27'
  by AGON - Friday, 28 December 2012

A biographical portrait of the great archaeologist-byzantinologist, through testimonies of his own, his partners, his students and friends. A travelogue that begins from his homeland, Salamis, back in 1907 and runs through the 20th century, marked by violence.
As cited in his award with the prestigious international Herder prize in 1985, he is referred as “a remarkable patriot and a great researcher…” who “despite the adverse conditions of his life… he offered a fundamental contribution in the understanding and interpretation of the ancient and mediaeval cultural heritage of Greece”.
