Description

Medieval authors, actors and artists alternately name and refrain from naming themselves and their works. So, too, they sign, forge, and sometimes date them - in terms modern scholars have both accepted and contested. Papers explore what is in question in these various acts. Topics include the giving, withholding, invention and interpretation of names; the attribution, establishment and falsification of historical and imagined dates; and the forms by which medieval works and deeds bear signatures worthy of critical attention today.
