Veronika Sladká completed her BA in the History of Philosophy and European History at Charles University, and is currently working on her PhD in book history. Her research focuses on the circulation of books and their provenance, as well as printing and book binding technologies. She recently completed a masters thesis on the history of the St. Thomas Monastery library in Prague, and the intellectual founders of the Augustinian order. As part of the thesis, she has created a catalogue of the incunabula in the library, including research on their provenance, binding, notes inside the books, comparison to other digital sources, and the origin of the book. She is proficient in Latin, fluent in German, and has mastered the art of reading medieval and early modern texts. As the librarian of the St. Thomas library, she is assisting Project Vox with research on early modern book history in Central Europe, particularly the circulation of Émilie Du Châtelet's works.
