CODEX: Studying Medieval and Early Modern Texts and Books
The Centre for the History of the Book and Texts (CODEX) was established in 2007. The Centre was recognised by the Babeș-Bolyai University of Cluj as a “centre of research, development and innovation” in 2013-2016, in 2016-2020, and again in 2021-2025.
We study medieval and early modern books and texts. Our focus lies on Latin palaeography and codicology, on textual history, and the history of books and libraries.
The Centre has a research library of about 1000 volumes.
CODEX is affiliated to the Fédération Internationale des Instituts d’Études Médiévales (FIDEM).
