Gemmes et magie – workshop at the University of Fribourg 09.2010


From september 29th – october 1st a very inspirational workshop about gemmes et magie was organised at the University of Fribourg by Prof. Véronique Dasen. I would like to name the participants with the titles of their papers here so that scholars as well as students and everyone interested in the topic has got an additional chance to find some informations about the latest research going on at the moment and the people behind it.
Best wishes,
