The publication of critical texts on Greek Literature – one of the basic objectives of the study of Literature – can be made possible only through the study of the manuscripts and the texts still available to us. The Palaeography – Papyrology Workshop will provide the possibility to gather the relative material together, such as microfilms, microfiche and photographs of manuscripts from libraries around Greece and abroad, on the one hand, and to enrich their study with high technology reading, printing and digital analysis devices, on the other.

The centre will support teaching and research aims, as it will provide the opportunity for the execution of seminar courses specializing on the publication and study of the Greek writing, improving thus student aptitude while, at the same time, the use of these technical supplies will enhance research in the Department and the University as a whole.
