Textual Criticism Summer School with Kristin De Troyer

For those who don't know, Kristin De Troyer has a particular passion for doing summer schools in textual criticism, and she has done a number in Göttingen in the past. This year, the Septuaginta-Unternehmen will not be hosting a summer school, but Kristin has decided to do one in Salzburg, her new home. This would be a great opportunity for students who want to learn to deal with ancient manuscripts and textual criticism from one of the foremost experts in the field. Highly recommended!
