The Journal «Scripta. An International Journal of Codicology and Palaeography» presents a concept of palaeography inspired by Malloni's idea of a total science of written culture, and thus offers a meeting-place for comparing various experiences in scientific research of various origins and schools of thought. It is well-known that palaeography and codicology have been recently shown to be a focal point for methodological considerations in the humanities, providing important contributions to the study of the tradition of literary and documentary texts in the ancient and medieval world. Therefore the Journal welcomes studies of any type of text in a wide linguistic panorama that brings together the Greek and Latin, medieval vernacular, and the Egyptian, Arab, Armenian, Coptic, Jewish, Georgian, Persian and Slavic worlds, stimulating reflection on the sundry historical traditions that form the foundation of our contemporary world. In an international perspective rich in important editorial ventures, the journal is especially devoted to the history of written manuscripts in European and Mediterranean civilization, without limitation as to chronology, type (book-related, documentary, epigraphic, public, private), support and writing techniques. From this point of view, the history of the book considered as the archaeology of an artefact plays a fundamental role, exploring the means of production and enjoyment as well as the circulation of texts. The Journal seeks to investigate every aspect of writing, including the realm of public and private libraries, schools, the care and restoration of books, and the training and social role of writers. In addition to hosting essays on the aforementioned themes, Scripta welcomes articles exploring topics regarding the history of studies and methods of palaeographic research, and will review publications in this sector considered relevant due to their structure and results.

Abstract

The Journal «Scripta. An International Journal of Codicology and Palaeography» presents a concept of palaeography inspired by Malloni's idea of a total science of written culture, and thus offers a meeting-place for comparing various experiences in scientific research of various origins and schools of thought. It is well-known that palaeography and codicology have been recently shown to be a focal point for methodological considerations in the humanities, providing important contributions to the study of the tradition of literary and documentary texts in the ancient and medieval world. Therefore the Journal welcomes studies of any type of text in a wide linguistic panorama that brings together the Greek and Latin, medieval vernacular, and the Egyptian, Arab, Armenian, Coptic, Jewish, Georgian, Persian and Slavic worlds, stimulating reflection on the sundry historical traditions that form the foundation of our contemporary world. In an international perspective rich in important editorial ventures, the journal is especially devoted to the history of written manuscripts in European and Mediterranean civilization, without limitation as to chronology, type (book-related, documentary, epigraphic, public, private), support and writing techniques. From this point of view, the history of the book considered as the archaeology of an artefact plays a fundamental role, exploring the means of production and enjoyment as well as the circulation of texts. The Journal seeks to investigate every aspect of writing, including the realm of public and private libraries, schools, the care and restoration of books, and the training and social role of writers. In addition to hosting essays on the aforementioned themes, Scripta welcomes articles exploring topics regarding the history of studies and methods of palaeographic research, and will review publications in this sector considered relevant due to their structure and results.
