Papyrology and the ancient world

What is papyrology? What do papyrologists do? What does writing on papyri tell us about the ancient world? Join expert Jean-Luc Fournet for an insight into the world of papyri.

Jean-Luc Fournet is an eminent French papyrologist. He was appointed professor at the Collège de France (Paris) in 2015. Prior to this Jean-Luc was a member of the Institut Français d’Archéologie Orientale in Cairo, a researcher at the CNRS in Strasbourg, and professor at the École Pratique des Hautes Études (Department of Historical and Philological Sciences) in Paris. He devotes much of his scholarly activity to editing new texts, including papyri and Greek inscriptions on late antique amphorae, which he was the first to decipher.
