Ghost Words exhibition launch event
University Librarian, Dr Jessica Gardner, warmly invites you to join an online lecture to mark the opening of Ghost Words: Reading the Past, a season of digital events and exhibitions.

The Three Lives of Codex Zacynthius
with David C. Parker, Professor Emeritus of the University of Birmingham

Codex Zacynthius was first written in the eighth century. It is the oldest surviving copy of a New Testament writing to contain in its margins a commentary. This text was erased in the twelfth century and replaced with a lectionary text. The use of modern imaging techniques has made possible fuller reconstruction of the old text than ever before. And digital technology has made possible an online edition which provides a complete set of images and the full text of both layers of writing. The lecture describes the research project and describes what we have learned about Codex Zacynthius.

There will also be the opportunity to hear from the exhibition curators, Dr Ben Outhwaite and Dr Suzanne Paul, about the exhibition, and to put your questions to all the guest speakers.
