The University in Sofia is pleased to announce the ReIReS School 22-27 September 2019 on the use and study of special documents. Especially – but not only – PhD students and postdocs are welcome, both from ReIReS partners and other institutions.
About the School
The school in Sofia will make scholars familiar with special, less known and remote collections like the unique collection of Greek, Arabic and Slavonic manuscripts in Center Dujcev, the digital version of the Zographou manuscripts collection, which is not accessible in situ (on the Mount Athos in Greece) to female researchers; with the history of Bulgarian Church and religious literature and the history of the oldest and biggest Bulgarian monastery and its role for preserving the religious identity of the Bulgarian population.
The school is open to scholars affiliated to the ReIReS consortium and to max. five persons from outside the consortium. Scholars from outside the consortium will pay a registration fee of € 395.00.
ReIReS is a starting community of twelve European institutions that are building a unique and highly qualified infrastructure of religious studies. ReIReS brings knowledge into the field of religious pluralism in Europe, thus contributing to a stable society. It explains and implements the idea that “Knowledge Creates Understanding”. The ReIReS initiative started in February 2018, and will continue for three years. It has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement No. 730895.
