MEDIEVAL SLAVIC SUMMER INSTITUTE

The Ohio State University

June 25-July 20, 2001

The Hilandar Research Library (HRL)/Resource Center for Medieval Slavic
Studies (RCMSS) and the Department of Slavic and East European
Languages and Literatures (DSEELL) at The Ohio State University will
host a four-week intensive Summer Institute in Columbus, Ohio, June
25-July 20, 2001. The Medieval Slavic Summer Institute (MSSI) will
offer: Practical Slavic Palaeography (Slavic 870) and Readings in
Church Slavonic (Slavic 812). All lectures will be in English.
Manuscript material on microform from the Hilandar Research Library's
extensive holdings forms a large part of the lectures and exercises. 
Participants will also have the opportunity to work with original
manuscripts and to conduct their own individualized research in the
HRL. Also planned is a program of lectures on related topics and other
activities.

 
Applicants must have a B.A. degree and a reading knowledge of Cyrillic
and of at least one Slavic language. Preference will be given to
applicants with reading knowledge of Old Church Slavonic or some other
pre-modern Slavic language.

 
The Hilandar Research Library, the largest repository of medieval
Slavic Cyrillic texts on microform in the world, includes the holdings
from over 80 monastic, private, museum, and library collections of
twenty-one countries. There are over 4,000 Cyrillic manuscripts on
microform in the HRL (more than a million pages), as well as over 700
Cyrillic early printed books from prior to 1800 on microform (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.
