Revisiting the Codex Buranus

In July 2018, I hosted an international workshop that aimed to reassess the thirteenth-century Codex Buranus from an interdisciplinary vantage point, gathering together the diverse strands of research on this fascinating manuscript and exploring new questions in order to open up avenues for future research.

The workshop took place at the manuscript’s probable historical home in Brixen and was made possible by generous funding from the Schweizerische Akademie der Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften and the Faculty of Education at the Free University of Bozen.

The gathering in Brixen stimulated rich conversations, fostered new academic networks, and encouraged some exciting, cross-discplinary research. You can read up on some of its fruits in: Tristan E. Franklinos & Henry Hope, Revisiting the Codex Buranus: Contents, Contexts, Composition, Woodbridge 2020.
