Grigory Vorobyev studied Italian, Byzantine and Neo-Latin philology in Saint Petersburg, Münster and Florence. He got his PhD in Greek paleography from Sapienza Università di Roma in 2017 and a kandidat nauk degree in Classical and Byzantine philology from Saint Petersburg State University later that year. His first thesis dealt with manuscripts copied by Demetrius Chalkondyles, whereas his second one focused on animal names in Theodore Gaza’s Latin translation of Aristotelian zoological writings. His main interests concern the activity of Byzantine intellectuals in Italy, the production and circulation of Greek manuscripts in the West, the medieval and Early Modern reception of Aristotle, and the history of Latin scientific terminology. Grigory is currently based at the Institute for Linguistic Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Saint Petersburg. As an LBI fellow he will be investigating how the Latin animal names introduced by Theodore Gaza were used in the Early Modern scientific treatises and dictionaries.
