Project description

Literary, linguistic and historical analysis of a corpus of book epigrams from medieval Greek manuscripts. Unknown texts will be published with a commentary, both in paper version and on-line. The analysis will shed new light on the literary aesthetics of the Byzantine period, the evolution of medieval Greek language, orthography and verse forms, and the socio-historical context of the emergence of books and manuscripts.
