Not the beautiful city of Bologna, but an online environment will be the place where the forthcoming ReIReS School on the use and study of special documents will be held, March 21-26, 2021.
The school will be hosted by Fscire in Bologna. It will make scholars familiar with special, less known and remote collections of the historia conciliorum like Mansi3 @mplissima digital library and the Roncalli papers. The analysis of the texts pertaining to Church history will be compared with similar analysis in the context of the Jewish and Islamic traditions, through the study of two key-studies presented by internationally renowned scholars who work in Bologna: Prof. Mauro Perani will present his discovery of the Sefer Torah scroll – the oldest complete Torah scroll – and Dr. Alba Fedeli will explain how she works on the Qur’anic fragments of the 7th century.
Call for Applications
The call for applications will be launched in January 2021.
You will find the preliminary program of the School in the ReIReS Training Programme (page 43-48).
