The production of manuscript books continued to be a thriving industry in Greece until the end of the 18th century, over 300 years after the introduction of Greek printed texts. From theological and ecclesiastical materials to biographical accounts, the range of subject matter carefully transcribed by the scribes was wide, and the study of these books offers fascinating insights into the development of Greek identity and the rich variety of written culture. This book contains 12 essays on the particularly rich and representative Greek manuscript book collection of the Gennadius Library. The authors are all leading manuscript scholars, and the papers are illustrated in colour with some of the most interesting and beautiful examples held in the Library's care. Modern Greek language edition is also available (9789607067081).
