Description

These two sessions ('In the Zone' (I) and (II)), will address afresh nature of the 'Beneventan Zone,' a term coined by the palaeographer E. A. Lowe to describe and define the 'script-zone' in Southern Italy that resisted the Caroline reform. To what extent does a broader cultural Zone correspond to, reflect, or shape the “script zone” defined by the use of the southern Italian minuscule? What variation can be detected within the Zone and at its boundaries? Musical, art historical, chronicles, and liturgical sources will be discussed.
