Dear Colleagues,
the newly found (so-called) Caucasian Albanian Palimpsests [manuscripts 
stemming from the 6.-7. century AD] have now been fully deciphered, 
translated and edited by Jost Gippert, Wolfgang Schulze, Zaza Aleksidze, 
and Jean-Pierre Mahé. The two volumes (in 4to format, 650 pages) include 
a presentation of Caucasian Albanian, a full grammar of the language of 
the texts (including remarks on minor inscriptions, language history 
etc.), an editio minor of the texts (Gospel of John, Lectionary) for 
quick reference, indices and concordances (Caucasian Albanian/Old 
Armenian/Old Georgian/Russian/English/Udi), and (in the second volume) 
the editio princeps with photographs of the single parchment sheets, 
facsimiles, transliteration, and parallel texts in Armenian; Georgian, 
Russian, Syriac, English, and Udi.
The two volumes are going to be published at Brépols (Turnhout, 
Belgium), see 
http://www.brepols.net/catalogue/index.jsp?mpk=20295&art=875817 ). The 
publisher expects a relevant number of orders before starting to print 
the volumes (that shall appear this year in spring). In case libraries 
or individuals are interested in ordering the two volumes they are 
kindly invited to follow the link mentioned above.
Very best wishes,
Wolfgang
