All information and updates will be published on this webpage as soon as they will be available.

Codicology of Syriac Manuscripts from Late Antiquity to the present: the making of the Syriac book (materials, tools, layout; the scribe at work).
The book and its content: typology of Syriac book production.
The art of the Syriac book: illustration and decoration.
Syriac paleography.
Cataloguing Syriac books: old catalogues and new web tools.
A comparative perspective: Arabic, Coptic, Armenian codicology and illustration.


The summer school will enable students and scholars who already know Syriac, and/or have a basic knowledge of codicology, to study, analyze and describe Syriac manuscripts, from Late Antique age to the present, in a comparative perspective (with respect to Arabic, Coptic, Armenian manuscript culture), as cultural products, both material and immaterial.
Skills in cataloguing and arthistorical analysis will be attained.
