Description

Glossed manuscripts are an important window into the intellectual life of the early Middle Ages and the way ideas circulated. This session brings together papers on glossed copies from Anglo-Saxon England of three key texts: the Psalms, Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy and Augustine's Soliloquies. The session will seek to consider what needs glossing was intended to serve, where the annotation derived from, and also how much glosses can tell us about the interests of those who created and used these books.
