The Novgorod Kremlin’s XI-XIV century birch-barks delivered to the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy

We hardly believed it would ever happen but on November 16 the Novgorod-placed monumental ancient Russian manuscripts were delivered to Sokolniki, Museum-Educational Complex.

Birch-bark manuscripts presentation is a joint project of the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy and the State Novgorod United Museum-Reserve.

The masterpieces will be on display at the one-day exhibition today from 02.00 pm to 08.00 pm. Beside the birch-barks the Four Gospels, 1575 will also be showcased.

The Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy would like to thank Natalya Grigoryeva, Director General of the State Novgorod United Museum-Reserve; Natalya Gormina, conservator. A special thanks to the project’s friends – Andrei Busygin, Deputy Minister of Culture and Galina Andreyeva, CEO of ICOM Russia for their support and assistance.

We are waiting for you at the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy!
