MEDIEVAL SLAVIC SUMMER INSTITUTE

JUNE 21-JULY 9, 1999

THE HILANDAR RESEARCH LIBRARY/RESOURCE CENTER FOR MEDIEVAL SLAVIC
STUDIES AND THE DEPARTMENT OF SLAVIC AND EAST EUROPEAN LANGUAGES AND
LITERATURES

THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY, COLUMBUS, OHIO

The Hilandar Research Library (HRL)/Resource Center for Medieval
Slavic Studies (RCMSS) and the Department of Slavic and East European
Languages and Literatures at The Ohio State University will host a
three-week intensive summer institute in Columbus, Ohio, June 21 -
July 9, 1999. Two courses will be offered: Practical Slavic
Paleography (Slavic 870) and Readings in Church Slavonic (Slavic 812).
Both courses will use manuscript materials on microform from the
Hilandar Research Library's extensive holdings. Participants will
have the opportunity to work with original manuscripts and to conduct
their own individualized research in the HRL. A program of lectures
on related topics, films, and other activities are planned.

The Hilandar Research Library, the largest repository of medieval
Slavic Cyrillic texts on microform in the world, includes the holdings
of 71 monastic, private, museum and library collections from 20
countries. There are over 4000 Cyrillic manuscripts on microform in
the collection (more than a million pages), as well as over 700
Cyrillic printed books from prior to 1800 on microfilm (more than half
a million pages). The holdings range from the eleventh to twentieth
centuries, with a particularly strong collection of manuscripts from
the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries. About half of the manuscripts
are East Slavic, with much of the remainder South Slavic in
provenience.

in Old Church Slavonic (Slavic 810) Spring Quarter, 1999.
