COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR REASSESMENT OF THE CULTURAL HERITAGE
The new strain of coronavirus - COVID-19 - shocked the whole world and turned into a global pandemic. The digital portals were a pleasant surprise as it allowed perusing, long-distance, practically all of their important illustrated medieval manuscripts, page by page. The high resolution of their images was of immense help to this study. Similarly, museums that now offer digitized images of their collections provide a great service to researchers. What they have achieved in this respect is not only of value to researchers, but it opens the door to the general public, for items that only a privileged few could previously see and admire. However, until now, many complex and incomprehensible works of art require new and precise research to re-evaluate the medieval cultural heritage of Azerbaijan. We hope that the digitalization of cultural heritage will give a tangible impetus to such research.
