The New Series

The ‘New Series’
of Symposia, Colloquia, Workshops & Seminars

Logo of the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence (colour version)Following our Annual Series of Symposia on ‘The Transmission of the Bible’ (1995–2000), held at various centers in New Jersey and New York, the Research Group on Manuscript Evidence concentrated on other activities, before resuming its scholarly Events in centers apart from its Sponsored Sessions at the Annual International Congress on Medieval Studies.  This ‘New Series’ commenced with the Inaugural Workshop at The College of New Jersey, celebrating the Early Medieval Forum Listserv and the Recognition of Tax-Exempt Status for the Research Group as a nonprofit educational corporation.

The posts for the individual Events in this series provide details, often with illustrations and with downloadable Booklets, laid out according to our Style Manifesto — also available freely for download.  These and related Booklets join our Publications, which, since its development, are set in our multilingual font Bembino.
