New Training School in Codicology

Applications are now open for a new week-long training school in codicology which will run in Berlin this spring. It has no direct connection with the DigiPal project: it is funded entirely by COST and is running as part of the COST Action IS1005, Medioevo Europeo – Medieval Cultures and Technological Resources. Quoting directly from the training school web page:

Topics covered will include writing materials, formats and layout, with particular focus on presenting a typology of medieval manuscripts, illustrated by Bibles, manuscripts of the Latin classics and literary and legal manuscripts in the vernacular. A significant component of the school will be instruction in the use of TEI-conformant XML to record and analyse codicological data. There will also be a presentation of Manuscripta mediaevalia, a joint online venture of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek München and the Deutsches Dokumentationszentrum für Kunstgeschichte - Bildarchiv Foto Marburg, which gives access to the manuscript collections of hundreds of libraries in Europe and the United States.

Listed instructors are Matthew Driscoll and Silvia Hufnagel (Copenhagen), Robert Giel, Eef Overgaauw and Lena Rohrbach (Berlin),  J. P. Gumbert (Leiden), and Elena Pierazzo (King's College London).

The course is open to doctoral and post-doctoral students in any of the thirty-six COST countries. Applications are due by the end of February. Further details including how to apply are available from <>.
