Summer School in Latin and Greek Codicology and Palaeography

The intensive, real time course is an online adaptation of the previous, in situ, SUN Latin and Greek Codicology and Palaeography summer schools. The one-week course (6 July - 10 July 2020) combines practical palaeography instruction with tuition in textual criticism, codicology and diplomatics. All classes are fully interactive using Zoom. It is aimed at PhD and MA students and young researchers and provides and opportunity to build research network. Deadline for application is 8 June.

Course description

The Summer School is an intensive, real time (CET), fully interactive online course. It comprises two morning sessions and one afternoon session. With a focus on intensive Latin and Greek palaeography classes in parallel tracks, it also provides instruction in textual criticism and diplomatics. It includes thematic lectures, assignments, introduction to online resources, a palaeography exam and an opportunity for consultation. It gives a certificate of attendance and ECTS credits. 

Aim of the course

The aim of the Summer School is to provide practical training at beginner and advanced levels in Latin and Greek palaeography combined with an introduction to codicology and practical assignments of textual criticism and diplomatics. While the intensive palaeography seminars focus on the skills of reading, transcribing and dating Latin and Greek manuscript hands, the lectures on codicology and diplomatics provide insights into the new developments in the study of medieval book and document production. Information about online resources and discussion of interactive tools bring students up-to-date with online developments. The Summer School gives an opportunity for students to meet others with similar research interest, exchange ideas and build network.
