Supported by the AHRC 4-year funded project, Greek manuscripts in Renaissance Venice: The library of Guillaume Pellicier and its contribution to Europe’s intellectual heritage
The workshop is hosted by project partner, the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. 

The study of the Greek manuscripts of Guillaume Pellicier, now in the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, has raised questions that are best answered through the use of innovative techniques from the digital humanities field. The objective of the workshop is to better understand the current trends in manuscript description and how they may generate new areas of research. Old methods and new approaches will be discussed by specialists invited by the Pellicier project and the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.
