ERC Project GRAPH-EAST Launch

Jerusalem, CRFJ

Dealing with inscriptions and graffiti in Latin alphabet in the monumental graphic landscape of the Eastern Mediterranean (7th-16th c.), an area dominated by the Byzantine and mainly the Islamic Empire, this project focuses on interactions between writings to provide a connected history of epigraphy.  The aim of this inauguration is to lay the foundations of the programme for the next five years, as well as to open up wider spatio-temporal horizons.
