Greek manuscripts are being restored to the condition they were when they were first printed in the early 1600s, a report by a Greek-language news site says.
Greece’s State Library of Greece says the National Library of Athens has restored the manuscripts of the Hellenistic period to their pre-Greek conditions.
The library said in a statement Tuesday that they will be available for viewing in the library, and in addition to their previous condition, the manuscripts will be in the condition that they were published in.
The Greek state library said it was the first time in its history that the library has made such a large number of such large-scale restoration efforts.
In addition to restoring a significant number of the original Greek manuscripts, the library also hopes to recover the ancient Greek writing on the tablets, which was used as the basis for the original printing.
The state library will continue to use the texts as it has for over 100 years, the statement said.
In addition to the restoration of the manuscripts, they will also be restored to a condition that the researchers had been hoping for, the report said.
The Greek state libraries said that the manuscripts were in a condition of near perfect condition.
The National Library has published several books in the past on the Hellenes’ literary legacy and the authorship of the Greek texts.
The National Library’s website said that in the previous restoration, the books were in bad condition.
The news comes as the Greek government seeks to improve the quality of its Greek language textbooks.
The government is considering a number of new requirements for textbooks, which include replacing antiquated and outdated language texts with modern ones.
The new standards would also require textbooks to include all the relevant information in their texts.
