GEORGES KAZAN

Georges Kazan is a Senior Researcher in Archaeology and Advanced Studies at the University of Turku in Finland. Since 2012, he has been a research associate of the School of Archaeology at the University of Oxford, where he also gained his doctorate, studying the origins and development of the early cult of Christian relics. His research applies a range of disciplines (archaeology, natural sciences, philosophy, history, art history) to the study of Christian relics, in order to gain as full an understanding as possible of their significance. In 2015, with the Oxford archaeologist, Professor Thomas Higham, he co-founded the Oxford Relics Cluster to further this interdisciplinary research. He has also worked to establish or develop new archaeological science methods where possible. He is a member of Europae Thesauri (European Association of Church and Cathedral Treasuries), and has led a number of relic research projects, in collaboration with national museums, cathedrals and archdioceses. With the approval of these stakeholders, he has also collaborated with mainstream media and news channels (e.g. CNN) to communicate this research to the public.
