Recently, the Research Centre for European Philological Tradition has focused on the digital reconstruction of dismembered manuscripts, mainly Books of Hours. Prof. Carla Rossi has developed a very effective methodology to recover digital fragments of scattered parchment masterpieces sold on the antiquarian book market. The method, called WayBack Recovery©, will make it possible to digitally reassemble over 300 Books of Hours.

Most of the publications in 2022 and 2023 are devoted to these important reconstructions.

In 2020 RECEPTIO Academic Press Ltd (Company Number 12765391) turned digital. This means that all our publications are accessible in e-book and print on demand version. The publishing house is directed by Professor Carla Rossi. Starting in autumn 2022, we will issue a series of manuscripts' reconstructions, dismembered by biblioclastic dealers. Each publication is subject to blind-peer-review. The reconstructions are based on the WayBack Recovery Method. If you would like to propose a reconstruction, please write to info(at)

TCLA (digital version ISSN 2297-1874, printed version ISSN 2504-2238) is a Swiss-British academic biannual journal, published in London in Open Access (by the RECEPTIO Academic Press Ltd), and devoted to theoretical and empirical scientific research works in the field of humanities. It is open to all researchers who are interested in publishing their scientific achievements. 


Our Journal’s title has been chosen to recall, a little nostalgically, Teoria e Critica / Theory and Criticism, an academic journal co-founded by Luciano Rossi in 1972. 


TCLA is present in the following repertoires: JDBWorldCat, ROAD1, ROAD2


The journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.  

The reviewers are independent of the authors, i.e. not affiliated with the same institution.
