Workshop of Manuscripts

We learn about writing scripts of different countries and languages, but the major focus is on the old Church Slavonic language.

Our workshop offers a course discussing the roots of the Russian literary language. The course leader and presenter is Irina Pavlova, professor of the old Church Slavonic language. 

What you can expect at our meetings:

At our meetings we study the Church Slavonic alphabet, learn to draw the letters of the alphabet and read original texts from the Gospel.

We study rare facsimile editions from the collection of the library: King David's Book of Psalms, Kiev Book of Psalms, chronicles of XVI century and others. 

To practice writing letters you need to bring color pencils and pens, an album, a ruler and a glue stick.

The meetings are every Friday, at 17:00
