An international scientific project dedicated to Francysk Skaryna was presented in Minsk. Seven researchers from Belarus, Lithuania and the Czech Republic worked on it. They discovered new facts about the Belarusian printer and his family, and came up with a hypothesis on his publishing activity. The emphasis was made on the Prague period. The scientific work is available only in Belarus. But soon a translation in several European languages will be available on the website of the library of the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences.
