Kratka vsebina

When preparing the international symposium “Works of Art on Parchment and Paper” in the spring of 2018, our plans coincided with those of the European Year of Cultural Heritage: we set out to present the research work and the never-forgotten concern for artworks created on parchment and paper – two of the historically most important and most frequently used media. Our invitation to participate in the symposium was accepted by many scientists, experts in this field of work, from various countries extending from the Baltics to Central America. In 2019, the year of the symposium and the presentation of this publication, the University of Ljubljana is celebrating its centenary, which for us marks an extraordinary jubilee; in this period, we formed the Slovenian scientific language, sharpened our views, and contributed to joint scientific progress.
