School teaches about scripts and manuscripts, introducing learners to the sciences of paleography and codicology.
Under the Scripts and Manuscripts heading below, choose a manuscript culture and follow the development of scripts through the centuries. Lessons include simple exercises to help you grasp important concepts. Lessons on Latin Scripts do not necessarily require a knowledge of Latin.
Transcribing Manuscripts offers a chance to practice reading the scripts covered in the Scripts and Manuscripts lessons. Each transcription exercise includes an answer key. The lessons in Transcribing Latin or Syriac Manuscripts assume a knowledge of Latin or Syriac respectively.
Lessons for Arabic scripts are currently being developed.
Lessons for Armenian scripts are currently being developed.
Lessons for Gәʿәz scripts are currently being developed.
We hope to add lessons for Greek scripts some time in 2017.
