This interdisciplinary training event will be relevant to students of medieval history, literature, art history and medieval thought.

It will consist of a keynote presentation by Francis Newton (Duke University) and Erik Kwakkel (University of Leiden) on: Arabic Medicine at Monte Cassino: A Manuscript Witness from the Desk of Constantine the African

The keynote will be preceded by shorter parallel sessions on examples of autographs and holographs from other eras plus an introduction to parchment forensics for all, which will introduce both cutting-edge biomolecular techniques and new insights from a conservator who has also been invited to teach parchment making across Europe, in Iceland, Austria, Oxford, and Turkey.
