Lezing Georgi Parpulov: Byzantine Scribes and their Paratexts (Gent, 15 mei 2018)

The Database of Byzantine Book Epigrams team kindly invites you to a lecture “Byzantine Scribes and their Paratexts” by Georgi Parpulov.


The study of paratexts (additions) in medieval Greek manuscripts has made great advances over the past decade. My paper will discuss some of the ways in which such paratexts were selected and transmitted from one manuscript to another.

Georgi Parpulov studied history at the University of Sofia and art history at the University of Chicago. He subsequently did curatorial work at the Walters Art Museum, the J Paul Getty Museum and the British Museum, and taught at the University of Oxford.​
