Author: Department of Classics

Over winter break, four Notre Dame graduate students and alumni attended the Winter School in Paleography and Codicology at the American Academy in Rome, led by Dr. David Gura, curator of ancient and medieval manuscripts at Notre Dame, and in collaboration with the Vatican Library and the University of Notre Dame Rome Global Gateway. The course consisted of lectures on paleography and codicology led by Dr. Gura, time for each student to study a manuscript at the Vatican Library, and a presentation by each student on the manuscript he or she studied.
