Abstract :
The article surveys the scientific activity in Thessalonike during the middle Palaiologan period. We study the scientific output of Byzantine scholars originating in this town, along with their activities on a number of scientific manuscripts; among the personalities here presented figure John Katrarios, Demetrios Triklinios, Nikolaos Kabasilas, Demetrios Kydônes, Theodoros Kabasilas. Some of the sources here studied still lie unedited. We shall show that a sustained scientific activity begun in Thessalonike when John Pediasimos returned to his hometown at the end of his career; the extant sources, however, do not substantiate the claim that a well-established school was active there.
