The Medieval Bible RoadshowPosted: February 6, 2012
In the last few weeks I went into small silence. The holidays were followed by the design of a biblical database, and I assumed that these will be of less interest for readers. If you are, however, keen about using FileMaker Pro scripts in the analysis of manuscript collation (or in family pictures from the Christmas market) – feel free to drop a line in the comments.
For the time being I thought of sending word that the medieval Bible is taking to the road. As part of the Carnegie project, I’ll be travelling between partner institutions and using local manuscript collections, wherever available, to discuss the unique features of the Late Medieval Bible, the challenges and merits of its digital analysis. The schedule at the moment is:
- Aberdeen 1 March, 14:00. Special Collections Centre Seminar Room, Lower Ground Floor, University Library
- St Andrews 14 March, 14:15
- Glasgow 16 March, 14:30. The level 12 Henry Heaney Seminar Room, University Library
The Aberdeen and Glasgow sessions will take place in Special Collections, using their medieval manuscripts. Edinburgh will not be neglected for long – I am putting together an extended workshop which will bring scholars from further afield to examine its biblical manuscripts.
