Description

Few medieval magical texts have so far been made available to a modern audience in the form of editions or translations; most sources are still only accessible in their host manuscripts and early printed books. This session tackles issues relating to the medieval and renaissance transmission of magical texts ('Recto'), and the presentation of these sources in modernity ('Verso'). Explorations include the fluid nature of the transmission of magical sources in their original contexts, and the treatment of these sources by modern editors and translators.
