Description

Princeton’s Medieval Studies Program Sponsored session will explore scribal cultures in different parts of the world between the 5th and the 15th century. Scribal cultures across the Eurasian continent are often more connected than is usually recognized. Throughout the Middle Ages, connections to wider horizons persisted, linking different scribal cultures, framing new conversations between them, and inspiring new scripts, vocabularies, and literatures. The papers in this panel discuss scribal and documentary situations stretching from Egypt in the 8th and 9th centuries, to York, England in the twelfth century, and to the Balkan kingdoms in the 15th and 16th centuries. This session will be an extension of the 2018-2019 programming at Princeton on this topic, which is part of an ongoing Princeton initiative seeking to connect not only divergent parts of medieval worlds but also this initiative with similar interests and projects at other research institutions and by other scholars. We are especially excited to feature three early career scholars from across the globe on this panel. Sara Poor
