Cambridge University Library


Cambridge libraries contain hundreds of manuscripts written in Greek between the fifth and 18th centuries, from ancient Bibles to copies of Sophocles and Aristotle. A research project based at Cambridge University Library and funded by the Polonsky Foundation is conserving, digitising and cataloguing these manuscripts and making them available to everyone via the Cambridge Digital Library.

This is your chance to meet the interdisciplinary project team behind this special video created especially for the Cambridge Festival titled ‘The Journey of a Greek Manuscript’. Join photographer Raffaella, conservator Sam and cataloguer Chris, and ask them your questions about how they are involved in bringing these precious, often fragile books from the library shelf to the computer screen. 

This event is being hosted as part of the Cambridge Festival. Click here for their full programme.
