GERMAN PALAEOGRAPHY CLASS
The London Palaeography Summer School will be offering a German Palaeography class on Friday 22 June 2012, from 10.00-17.00. This is a reading class. Its aim is to familiarize students with a number of different handwritings. A variety of texts (in photocopies) will be examined and read: private correspondence, official correspondence of German courts and the Habsburg monarchy, petitions by individuals, replies by authorities, appeals, etc., from the 17th to the 20th centuries. The course will be flexible in as much as it will be possible to present documents from different centuries and handwriting styles in order to suit the needs of the participants.
