Epigraphy Summer School in Bulgaria and Greece 2016


Hardly a source could be found that is more important for the study of the Ancient society than the epigraphical monuments. This course provides a full treatment of the epigraphy as a historical discipline and besides the introduction to it, includes also a profound look into the ancient Roman society and a study of the all kinds of inscriptions and their peculiarities. The students will learn to use the newest methods of interpretation in their work with epigraphical documents, which will allow them to incorporate them into their future projects and researches in the fields of Ancient History, Archaeology, Classical Philology as well as others. They will have the unique opportunity to read and investigate monuments of three Roman provinces: Lower Moesia, Thracia and Macedonia in modern Bulgaria and Greece. In this way, situated in regions that used to be a border between the East and the West of the Roman Empire and in both Greek and Latin speaking lands of the Ancient Europe, the course provides an excellent studying ground in the field and is a great opportunity for those who want to add to their knowledge a competence of reading, deciphering, understanding, publishing the Latin and Greek inscriptions of the ancient Roman world; or those who are simply curious to get acquainted with the matters of the life and death, religion, politics, economy and social relations; matters that people expressed on stones.
