**

The SCRIPTO graduate programme at Friedrich-Alexander-University
Erlangen-Nuremberg aims to provide a systematic, research-oriented
introduction to the study of medieval and early modern books and their
interpretation. It combines research and instruction within the
framework of a uniquely innovative course, at the end of which each
candidate will be awarded a diploma from Friedrich-Alexander-University.

SCRIPTO is made up of a broad spectrum of subjects and offers the
following *courses*:

History and principles of cataloguing; text typology (philosophical and
theological texts; literary texts; liturgy; music; law; medicine;
medieval Latin; Book illumination (technology; stylistic history;
illustrational typology; iconography); palaeography, codicology,
incunabula studies;

SCRIPTO digital (Informatics as use and construction of databanks for
the interpretation, drawing up and administration of information about
manuscripts and preparation of printed catalogues; new: digitizing
medieval manuscripts, held at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich).

SCRIPTO VI offers additional research seminars by *Prof. E. Kwakkel*
(Leiden) (Measuring the immeasurable: Script development in the long
twelfth century), and *Prof. A. Stieldorf* (Bamberg) (Urkunden in
Handschriften. Zur Funktion mittelalterlicher Chartulare), a practical
training course in medieval bookbinding by *M. Strebel* (Hunzenschwil,
CH), the new Franconian Seminar by *Dr A. Fleischer* (Heidelberg)and
*Prof. M. C. Ferrari* (Erlangen) on Cistercian book culture as well as
an expected study trip to Sweden.

Participants will also have the opportunity to work on a common research
project.

The German Manuscript Centres in Berlin,Frankfurt, Leipzig,
Munich,Stuttgart and Wolfenb├╝ttel are supportive of the SCRIPTO
programme.

Sessions will take place in Erlangen (Universitaetsbibliothek), Munich
(Bayerische Staatsbibliothek), Nuremberg (Stadtbibliothek) and
Wolfenbuettel (Herzog August Bibliothek) at a fee of 1280 Euros per
participant (which includes travel and accommodations for seminars
outside of Erlangen). It is possible to take part in chosen modules
instead of taking part in the complete programme (in this case, the fee
will be reduced). Further information may be obtained online:
