Description

Talks in Making Sense of the Material will address the ways in which the makers of books make sense of their exemplars or several versions of a text. Among subjects to be considered is the work of scribes in organizing texts and in one case the materials used to make a text. While illustration sometimes serves to clarify the theme or subject of a text, in other cases it may provide a parallel running commentary; these too are topics for discussion. The final paper considers the way in which verses are literally translated from parchment to a church wall.
