It’s been the third day of the four day
Residential Research Library Inaugural Conference: Libraries, Learning and Religious Identities
(which is online now: http://www.durham-rrl.org.uk). Dr. Elizabeth Biggs and Graziana Ciola have presented their papers on the first day, but today Jacqueline Schindler could meet them and discuss their experiences with the ZKS/Lendrum/Barker fellowships. Elizabeth had finished her ZKS/Lendrum/Barker fellowship, but continued on the new RRL fellowship last summer and Graziana will have another three months. Both enjoy their experiences and the former fellow Mathew is teaching now at British Columbia University.
The ZKS/MIRABILE fellows completed their mission in time (one year, fabulous!) to put the mediaeval latin library online:
From now on one can consult this library and interrogate critical editions of mediaeval latin texts, whose number will continue to rise.
Our last board meeting in May …
