Description

This fourth session in our recurring series on "Medieval Writing Materials" at the Congress will focus upon subjects and methodologies which call for attention, in turn or in further refinement, in response to new or continuing research. Topics for consideration include the production, trade, and use of medieval writing materials, and the artful combinations of form and contents in their very surfaces, substances, and enclosures. The case studies consider the evidence for the evolution of Christian manuscript production in Ethiopia from its origins onward, the significance of the materials employed in the records for the Catalan companies of Francesco di Marco Datini da Prato, and the features of specimens of European watermarked paper in Early Ottoman contexts.
