Summer School in Medieval Codicology and Palaeography
18-23 July 2011, Budapest, Hungary
The aim of the one-week course is to provide practical training in basic skills of Latin and Greek palaeography, combined with codicological and diplomatic lectures, based on the latest trends in research.
I. The palaeography seminars provide practical training in Latin and Greek palaeography at an intermediate level, focusing on transcribing various scripts across broad chronological and geographic areas and dealing with issues such as recognition of script and dating of hand. Seminars will run in three parallel options: Latin book hand, Latin diplomatic hand and Greek book and diplomatic hands. Students will have the possibility to combine the two Latin options.
II. The lectures on codicology and diplomatics complement and contextualize the practice of the intensive transcription seminars.
III. A one-day workshop offers an opportunity for discussion based on brief thematic lectures given by the faculty.
IV. Visits to manuscript holding libraries and archives complement the course to facilitate contact with original material.
V. Practical palaeographical exam to test acquired knowledge.
