New list: Apparatus Criticus

By way of a post to the Classics List, Chris Weimer alerts us to the launch of a new, moderated listserv called Apparatus Criticus:

Apparatus Criticus is an academic email list which focuses on the study of manuscripts and textual criticism. This includes the study of manuscript traditions, critical apparatuses, palaeography (paleography), epigraphy, the restoration of fragmentary texts, emendation proposals, and text-critical methods and applications.

Note that access to the lists’ archives are restricted to members only.
