Since Christmas 2022, the research center RECEPTIO has been targeted by a malicious and virulent social media campaign, stemming from its founder's revelation of a profit-driven network of biblioclast dealers specializing in medieval manuscripts. The publishing house endured various forms of cyber and physical attacks for seven months and was consequently compelled to change its web and physical address.
The Research Centre for European Philological Tradition has been actively engaged in the digital reconstruction of dismembered manuscripts, particularly focusing on Books of Hours. Our publications for 2022 and 2023 predominantly revolve around these significant endeavors. The publishing house has thus been dissolved and taken over by the french Organization for the Protection of Medieval Manuscripts (OProM). Oprom has also faced threats and has taken steps to report its main aggressor. Publications, including the TCLA Journal, are published by the Bibliothèque de l'OProM.,
As 2024 commemorates the centenary of the birth of esteemed philologist Giuseppe Tavani, who published his final book in collaboration with our institution, our scientific committee has made the decision to establish an honorary award in his name.
TCLA (digital version ISSN 2297-1874, printed version ISSN 2504-2238) is an international academic journal, published in Open Access devoted to theoretical and empirical scientific research works in the field of humanities. It is open to all researchers who are interested in publishing their scientific achievements.
Our Journal’s title has been chosen to recall, a little nostalgically, Teoria e Critica / Theory and Criticism, an academic journal co-founded by Luciano Rossi in 1972.
The journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.
The reviewers are independent of the authors, i.e. not affiliated with the same institution.
