    An Introduction to Greek Palaeography

    This is an introductory course in Greek Palaeography, consisting of two parts. Part I is a survey of the history of the Greek script in relation to political events and cultural movements which shaped its evolution through the centuries. It covers evidence from early inscriptions, through majuscule and minuscule papyri and manuscripts to the printed book. Part II concentrates on the Greek minuscule in the Byzantine period (9th-15th c.). Participants will learn how to transcribe a text from a facsimile of a Greek manuscript and examine basic codicological and palaeographical aspects, including the ruling of the manuscript, the layout of the text, the use of ligatures, nomina sacra, abbreviations, symbols, and colophons.
