Ambrosiana Palimpsest Working Group Launch


Location: 715N Hesburgh Library (View on

From June 7–24, 2023, a team of imaging specialists and Notre Dame graduate students and faculty spent time in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana (Milan) capturing images of a palimpsest of homilies or commentary on the Gospel of Luke, possibly by the fourth-century author Titus of Bostra (Ambrosiano F 130 sup). This academic year, the Working Group will begin processing the captured images and creating a digital transcription of the manuscript. An orientation to the project will be held Wednesday, September 20th from 12:15–1:45 pm. Anyone interested in participating in the project is particularly welcome.

RSVP to Lilly Davis. Lunch will be provided for those who RSVP by September 13th.
