Project description

Creation of a corpus of book epigrams from Byzantine manuscripts. The corpus will be made available on-line. Unknown texts will be published with a commentary. Analysis of the material will eventually shed new light on the literary aesthetics of the period, the evolution of Byzantine language, orthography and verse forms, and the socio-historical context of book emergence.
