CLST 10.04 The Ancient Book: An Introduction to Paleography, Papyrology, Codicology, and Textual Criticism

Paleography is the study of ancient scripts, papyrology the study of scrolls, and codicology the study of ancient books. You’ll get a hands-on introduction by making actual scrolls and codices. You’ll also publish blog posts about your experiences and findings. Textual criticism is the art of trying to reconstruct the original text of ancient literary works. As a final project, students will use the skills of textual criticism to reconstruct a lost archetype.

Distributive and/or World Culture

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
