Description

The Old English Corpus exists in forms that are often only fragmentary: manuscripts are acephalous; texts are damaged; our understanding is hindered by lack of cultural context or referent. This session asks what difference such fragmentariness makes to our scholarly efforts to recuperate and interpret our corpus of materials. Each presenter will discuss one case study, and our respondent--an expert in fragmentology--will summarise the papers and contemporary work to collect extant materials.
