Hungary, partner of the Hebrew Fragments in European Libraries project

Over one hundred and seventy medieval Hebrew fragments from bookbindings found in various Hungarian collections were published (Scheiber, 1969). Further discoveries were made since by the new project initiated by Dr Tamas Turan with the technical support of the research centre Fragmenta Codicum of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. The Hungarian project proposes to extend the research to some neighbouring areas in Ukraine, Romania, Serbia and Croatia.
