“Greek Studies in 15th Century Europe” is a Marie Curie individual research project (2015-17) held by Paola Tomè and based at the Medieval and Modern Languages Faculty, University of Oxford, under the supervision of Martin McLaughlin and Nigel Wilson. The purpose is to investigate the crucial role played by the return of knowledge of Greek in the transformation of European culture, both through the translation of texts, and through the direct study of the language.
