Medieval Manuscripts in Transition

Medieval Manuscripts in Transition

Tradition and Creative Recycling
Edited by Geert Claassens, Werner Verbeke

Manuscripts are the source material par excellence for diverse academic disciplines. Art historians, philologists, historians, theologians, philosophers, book historians, and even jurists are known to gather around codices. In Medieval Manuscripts in Transition, various scholars investigate the ways in which the study of manuscripts can contribute to interpretation or provide insight. The essays in this book cover a broad range of topics from the development of classical themes to the transmission of lyrical models, from visual material that provides evidence of the reception of literary texts to the literary arts used as vehicles for love stories.
