Slavic Palaeography Summer School: Cyrillo-Methodian Heritage: 14th Century Scribes and Scriptoria in the Balkans, Sofia, July 25–31, 2022

The Slavic Palaeography Summer School is organised by the Cyrillo-Methodian Research Centre at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. In collaboration with the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, the Centre for Slavo-Byzantine Studies “Professor Ivan DujĨev” and the SS. Cyril and Methodius National Library, we offer the participants the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience working in the field of Slavic Palaeography according to its latest analysis methods and study approaches.

The Summer School will take place from 25-31 July in Sofia, Bulgaria. Our daily activities will be hosted by several academic institutions in Sofia and will see a series of morning lectures on Slavic Palaeography followed by afternoon workshops and practical study sessions focusing on South Slavic handwritings. It will be possible, afterwards, to explore the city and participate in guided tour of the city’s main points of interest.

The Summer School is open to undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as young researchers interested in Slavic Studies. A good knowledge of English and Russian is essential, for all activities will be conducted in these two languages. Some background knowledge of Church Slavonic is also expected.
