Rome, 23-25 March 2015
COST Action IS1301, studying “New Communities of Interpretation. Contexts, Strategies and Processes of Religious Transformation in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe” is a research network uniting over 120 researchers from 21 European countries. To contribute to the creation of research networks within and outside academia, it furthers connections between experienced scholars, regional and national archives and libraries as well as the upcoming generations of researchers.
The COST Action is proud to present a Training school on “Transmission of Texts in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe. Tools and Techniques for Dealing with Complicated Textual Traditions”. The focus of the Training School is on the ways and mechanics of dissemination of texts, on one hand, and on the various scholarly methods of tracing and dealing with textual transmission, on the other. The venue of the Training School is Villa Lante al Gianicolo, the seat of the Institutum Romanum Finlandiae, in Rome.
Organizers: Prof. Tuomas Heikkilä (Institutum Romanum Finlandiae) & Prof. August den Hollander (University of Antwerp/Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam).
