Description:

The newly found (so-called) Caucasian Albanian Palimpsests [manuscripts
stemming from the 6.-7. century AD] have now been fully deciphered,
translated and edited by Jost Gippert, Wolfgang Schulze, Zaza Aleksidze,
and Jean-Peirre Mahé. The two volumes (in 4to format, 650 pages) include a
presentation of Caucasian Albanian, a full grammar of the language of the
texts (including remarks on minor inscriptions, language history etc.), an
editio minor of the texts (Gospel of John, Lectionary) for quick reference,
indices and concordances (Caucasian Albanian/Old Armenian/Old
Georgian/Russian/English/Udi), and (in the second volume) the editio
princeps with photographs of the single parchment sheets, facsimiles,
transliteration, and parallel texts in Armenian; Georgian, Russian, Syriac,
English, and Udi.

The two volumes are going to be published at Brépols (Turnhout, Belgium),
see http://www.brepols.net/catalogue/index.jsp?mpk=20295&art=875817. The
publisher expects a relevant number of orders before starting to print the
volumes (that shall appear this year in spring). In case libraries or
individuals are interested in ordering the two volumes they are kindly
invited to follow the link mentioned above.
