Description

These two sessions ('Into the Zone' (I) and (II)'), will address afresh nature of the '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 reforms. 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? The sessions consider musical, art and liturgical sources with produced "in the zone" to probe what the nature of that zone is.
