*SCRIPTO Workshop S.t Petersburg (SWSSP)*

*The Legacy of German and Western Manuscripts in the Russian National *


*St. Petersburg, 30 September – 5 October 2019*

The Russian National Library in Saint Petersburg possesses a rich
collection of medieval manuscripts dating from the early to the late Middle
Ages. The SCRIPTO workshop „The Legacy of German and Western Manuscripts in
the Russian National Library“ offers young scholars the possibility of
studying outstanding pieces from this significant collection under expert
direction. We envisage several working sessions in which original
manuscripts will be examined and discussed. The course is aimed at advanced
young scholars who have completed their studies (usually, an M.A.) or a PhD
and who can show an established interest in the manuscript traditions of
the Middle Ages.
