From the story of a manuscript to the manuscript of a historian

I am now sitting at the Charles de Gaulle airport of Paris, returning finally home after the visit to Johannesburg, the Coptic seminar in Athens, and the defense of the PhD thesis of Robin Seignobos in the French capital.

It is difficult to pick out favorites from such a fantastic time of traveling, and there will be several opportunities to discuss both the study of manuscript BL 80 in Athens and the manuscript of the thesis of Robin (check here for the abstract in both French and English).

But I am lucky enough to be able to share three videos, which resume some quite central points of what happened during these three trips:

  1. The medley by Artur Molepo at the theater festival in memory of the great South African actor Ramolao Makhene:

2. My own talk uploaded on the YouTube channel of the Norwegian Institute of Athens:

3. And the peak moment of Robin’s thesis:

I think that these conclude nicely 2016. See you next year!
