Description

The second EBS session asks the question: When is a scribe not a scribe? Not all writers in manuscripts are professional scribes; they can be readers, annotators, correctors, or they might supply initials or instructions for artists. (For example, John Shirley is a well-known reader/annotator.) This session explores activities not always associated with scribal practice.
