We are pleased to announce the 

7th International Hilandar Conference" "Preserving the Past: Accessing Medieval Slavic Manuscripts" 

June 15-17, 2018

at The Ohio State University, Columbus OH

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the founding of the "Hilandar Room" and recognizing Professor Predrag Matejic for his contributions to the field of medieval Slavic studies. 

The international series of Hilandar conferences began at The Ohio State University in April 1981, when medieval Slavic scholars from 19 different countries came to our University to show their appreciation and support for what was then Hilandar Resource Project [HRP]. The HRP, at the invitation of the monks, had microfilmed at Hilandar Monastery nearly 1,000 Cyrillic manuscripts and over 400 medieval charters and edicts, thus creating for the first time opportunities for scholars, especially female scholars (who cannot work with the originals), to conduct research of nearly 500,000 pages of largely un-researched material, housed in what would in 1984 become the Hilandar Research Library [HRL], a special collection of the OSU Libraries.

We invite scholars to submit abstracts (not to exceed 500 words) to hilandar@osu.edu.
