Annaclara Cataldi Palau was born in Genoa, where she obtained a ‘Laurea’ in Classics at the University; she then lived for several years in Paris, her studies there culminating in a ‘Doctorat’ in Greek Palaeography at the Sorbonne. Afterwards the author moved to London, where she was named Visiting Professor for Greek Palaeography at King's College London from 2000 to 2006. This book contains twenty-four between papers and lectures in English, French and Italian on Greek palaeography, written over a period of ca. twenty years and published in various specialized periodicals. These papers cover several aspects of Greek palaeography, from the ninth century manuscripts of the Gospels written in Biblical Majuscule to manuscripts belonging to the ‘philosophical collection’ or to the Studios monastery in Constantinople. Other papers are dedicated to codices written in South Italy or to later manuscripts, such as the palimpsests on which a well-known fifteenth century scribe, George Baiophoros, copied grammar texts for the learned foreigners who wanted to learn Greek, or the manuscripts written in Epirus, with their peculiar bindings and decoration. The result is a book which explores several aspects of Greek palaeography. The theories developed in each article are richly illustrated with over 200 reproductions of Greek manuscripts, images of famous or little known items which in most instances are published for the first time and have sometimes been taken by the author herself. >
