Codex argenteus, the Gothic tradition in Sweden, and the Gothic Revival in Bulgaria
Uppsala University, University Library.
2005 (English)Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Abstract [en]

The crown jewel of manuscripts in Uppsala University Library is Codex argenteus, very often called the Silver Bible. It is a copy of the four Gospels, an evangeliarium, written in Gothic in the early 6th century. The paper gives: 1) a gen-eral presentation of the manuscript, its history, its material status, and its role in Swedish tradition (linguistics, national symbolism, and myth); 2) a synopsis of the Gothic tradition in Swedish great power historiography (Rudbeck, Stiern-hielm, and others); 3) a short presentation of the newly awakened interest in the Goths in today’s Bulgaria, a multi-disciplinary interest (philological, historical, archaeological, and so on), which has its focus upon Bishop Wulfila, who translated the Bible into Gothic in the 4th century.
