- Selection of source: each student will select one scientific source - modern nachlass or early modern or medieval manuscript, which has never been edited. There are no restrictions on language of origin (students are encouraged to work on manuscripts in their native languages)
- Bibliography: each student will prepare her/his own bibliography to provide historical background for the selected source (150-200 pages).
- Each student will prepare a "diplomatic edition" and a translation of a selection from the manuscript (ca. 15 pages).
- Each student will prepare a 2,000 words commentary on the background and content of the manuscript.
- The work will be personally supervised by the teacher, and will be performed during the semester according to a fixed schedule.
