Selby Old Fellow Inaugural Lecture

The Selby Old Fellow inaugural lecture is happening on Wednesday, 19 October 2022.

Join Dr Doru Costache, the University of Sydney Library’s current and inaugural Selby Old Fellow in Rare Books and Special Collections, as he discusses his scholarly research relating to the Orthodox Church and other areas of Christianity.

As part of his Fellowship, Dr Costache has been investigating an early medieval Gospel Lectionary from the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Codex Angus. This text was purported to have been written in one of the scriptoria of Constantinople around the twelfth century.

Following Dr Costache’s lecture, we also have Dr Andrew Mellas deliver an academic response to Doru’s presentation. This academic ‘conversation’ contextualises Dr Costache’s research and encourages reflection and questions on this fascinating manuscript.

Come along and hear some fascinating insights into this unique and complex manuscript!
