    Text as object in the Middle Ages

    The International Medieval Congress (IMC) is the largest medieval studies conference in the world. In line with the Special Thematic Strand in 2019 “Materialities” and the recent creation of the strand “Manuscript studies”, we organize sessions on “Text as object in the Middle Ages”. Texts, indeed, are at the same time an idea and a form. The latter is the result of a combination of inherited social uses and specific intentions by the various actors involved in transmitting the text as idea. This process begins with the authors, continues to the craftsmen (parchment and paper makers, copyists and chancery clerks, painters and illuminators, sculptors and weavers, booksellers…) and then on to possessors, readers, archives and libraries. All textual artefacts are concerned: manuscripts, charters, inscriptions, tapestries, seals, coins, etc.

    Empire of letters and Tigers of parchment

    International Medieval Congress

    Script is not a neutral communication medium. Scripts were particularly used throughout the Middle Ages to stage the idea of Empire, power and domination. The writing has the ability to connote authority and Empire and to inspire respect. On the other hand, the scriptural domain is a world in itself with its coherence and history. The idea of an ‘Empire of letters’ may have emerged within this world too. Both parts of this “empire of letters” are relevant for the palaeographical sessions on the specific thematic strand of ‘Empire’ organised at the International Medieval Congress 2014 in Leeds and sponsored by Apices and Cap Digital.

    Medieval Scripts and the Rules

    Call For Paper, Leeds, 2012

    Apices et l'IRHT patronent des sessions au dix-neuvième congrès international de Leeds (19th International Medieval Congress, 9-12 juillet 2012), dont le thème pour cette année est « Rules to Follow (or Not) : Règles à suivre (ou pas) ». L'écriture médiévale faisant partie du processus de communication interpersonnelle devait nécessairement suivre des règles assurant la lisibilité et la compréhension des textes par les acteurs de la communication. Ces sessions étudieront les écritures médiévales et les règles.
