abstract

The field of sigillography has grown rapidly in recent decades due to the abundance of new material available, including the online Dumbarton Oaks database of the 16,500 seals preserved by this institution. Publications have thus multiplied and have facilitated the use of seals by other researchers in almost all aspects of Byzantine history. Computer technology enables further progress. Used to enhance photographs, it allows seals in poor condition to be read. Database projects, which will have to be harmonised, have seen the light of day and, for some, the first achievements.
