Editing and Studying Medieval Annals

59th International Congress on Medieval Studies - Kalamazoo

Published on Friday, September 01, 2023

Abstract

ARANHIS (Archivum Annalisticum Hispanum) is a research project focused on the study of Medieval annals, in particular to their transmission and to the study of their uses during that period. An interdisciplinary team of scholars, presently working on different European universities, is developing electronic editions and studies on Medieval Iberian annals, but the project aims to create an international network on brief historiography written during the Middle Ages. Proposals on this subject are welcomed to join the sessions of this 59th International Congress on Medieval Studies held in Kalamazoo (USA).

Presentation

Medieval annals have been studied as primitive forms of medieval historiography. This has conditioned the study of these texts, favouring the oldest ones to the detriment of those composed from the 13th century onwards. They have also been published in books and journals, complicating the collation and the establishment of relationships between different texts, and also making it difficult to understand their processes of composition and transmission. To solve these problems, the research project ARANHIS is being developed, aiming to produce electronic editions of the Medieval Iberian annals, and a search engine to facilitate their analysis.
