Palamedes Project


PALimpsestorum Aetatis Mediae EDitiones Et Studia

The legendary Greek Palamedes was famous for his extraordinary wisdom and ingenuity. Euripides dedicated to him the lost tragedy Palamedes. He is the namesake of the research project PALAMEDES (PALimpsestorum Aetatis Mediae EDitiones Et Studia), which is funded by the Fritz Thyssen Foundation.

PALAMEDES is a collaboration between the universities of Göttingen and Bologna, as well as the Cultural Foundation of the National Bank of Greece (MIET) in Athens. Main partners are the Greek Orthodox Patriachate of Jerusalem and the Biblothèque nationale de France. In Göttingen, the project is associated with the Centrum Orbis Orientalis et Occidentalis (CORO) and the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities (GCDH).
