Analysis of Pigments on Painted Byzantine and Japanese Manuscripts, lecture by Kate Fulcher (Bodleian Libraries), Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford, June 26, 2023, 1:00–2:00 pm
This lecture is an introduction to the analysis of painted Byzantine and Japanese manuscripts by the Bodleian Libraries' new Heritage Scientist.
The post of Heritage Scientist at the Bodleian Libraries was re-instated at the beginning of 2023, enabling the analysis of manuscripts in the library’s collection. The focus so far has been on Byzantine manuscripts from the 10th to 13th centuries, and Japanese scrolls from the 17th century which contain painted pictures.
