Description

Within manuscript compilation a distinction can be made between texts which are central and those which are peripheral. This distinction is not just between texts placed inside or outside of the conventional written space; peripheral texts may also include notes, scholia or short comments, which are additional to an earlier compilation. Such peripheral texts are vital for our understanding of the interplay between codicology and text compilation, as well as the stratigraphy of production and usage, and reader response. This session invites papers studying the meaning and function of peripheral texts in manuscripts written or owned in England up to c. 1200.
