3Pi - Diagnosis of Papyrus-Parchment-Paper manuscripts through Advanced Imaging.

The scope of 3Pi Project (Papyrus, Parchment, Paper Imaging ) from the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies, Faculty of Arts, ESAT and the University Library, KU Leuven is focusing on interdisciplinary research on fragile historic documentary heritage as manuscripts on papyrus, parchment and paper, involving scientific imaging, analytical data, conservation science and  issemination on a performant dissemination platform in order to establish the origin and creation of documentary heritage artefacts. The 3Pi Data creation will allow characterization of
materials between micro and full object level from the oldest documents written on papyrus, to medieval and early modern parchment and paper manuscripts.
