Description

In medieval French literature, text and book are rarely synonymous. Over the last decade or so, medievalists have focused their efforts on short text collections and on the individual manuscript as a miniature library. Less attention has been paid to the opposite phenomenon: texts or cycles so long, they need to be copied over several volumes. The aim of this session is to foster dialogue between specialists of short and long works by focusing on the ways manuscript culture manages textual length. Isabelle Delage-Béland
