“New Light on Old Manuscripts: Recent Advances in Palimpsest Studies” brings together an international assembly of scholars who have been in the forefront of palimpsest studies in recent years, either in reading and analyzing palimpsests texts, or in making them legible through advanced imaging and image processing methods. The conference will also feature work that has been accomplished in the course of the Sinai Palimpsests Project (http://sinaipalimpsests.org).
