Abstract

Our session examines the role of communication between individuals in the exchange of ideas and information during the early medieval period, specifically in England, France and Italy. An examination of what kinds of ideas were exchanged during the period, by whom and for what purpose, will be made. The exploration of these relationships of exchange helps determine the agendas of some individuals in their writing, the ideas in which some people were interested , as well as the manner in which information was shared. Ælfric, Remigius of Auxerre and Eugipius of Lucullanum are some of the individuals whose works will be examined by the speakers.
