Host Institution: Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences

Financed By: Zeno Karl Schinder Foundaiton/Fragmentarium Fellowship

Fellow: Dr. Fanni Hende

Supervisor: Gábor Sarbak, DSc

A collection of fragments have been detached from some 28 incunabula in the Library and Information Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Although these fragments have merely been inventoried, information concerning their host volumes indicates that they come from the German-speaking part of Europe. For the first time, these fragments will be fully described, including a detailed analysis of their host volumes. The fragments will also be digitized and published on Fragmentarium. 

Fanni Hende, (PhD 2017, History, Pázmány Péter Catholic University) is a specialist in medieval codicology and early modern political history. She has nearly fifteen years experience working with manuscript fragments, and has been a member of the prestigious Fragmenta Codicum workshop (Res Libraria Hungariae Research Group) since 2014.
