Presentation for Anglophone visitors

Conscriptio is a Spanish platform 2.0 dedicated to the auxiliary sciences of history like paleography, diplomatics, codicology, sigillography, chronology, and epigraphy. The purpose of the blog is to introduce a specialty of history that because of its technical and minority nature, has little presence in the media. In the coming posts we aim to catch the attention of the following audience: someone with concerns about the basic knowledge of our scientific discipline, university students of different degrees or masters where the auxiliary sciences of history are taught, researchers from other related specialties (medievalists, modernists, archivists, art historians, philologists), and particularly experts in the field. Therefore we will have a divulging perspective for the general public, but with the necessary rigor of a scientific discipline.
The main meeting point of the Conscriptio platform is this Blogbut we are also present in other media such as Twitter, Facebook or YoutubeNecessary tools to become known, achieve maximum dissemination of the content and keep in touch with our visitors. We aim to be a discussion point in this area, all comments are welcome and we offer you an email for any questions Although the main language of the blog is Spanish, there is no problem to send comments or emails in English, because we can understand it and we will answer you in your language.

This project is supported by Néstor Vigil Montes, a scholarship PhD student at the University of Oviedo, whose doctoral thesis concerns the document production by notaries in the writing office of the chapter of Oviedo in the mid-fifteenth century. The research focuses present in their work are: late medieval and early modern paleography and diplomatics; notarial and cathedral chapters diplomatics; cathedral chapters in the middle ages, medieval urban history, and history of trade relations.
