Abstract

The papers in this session explore three angles on late medieval textual culture: from Bonaventure on Christ to Bradwardine – Kilvington on paradox, to music in the manuscripts of the office of the dead. Each paper examines the cultures which produced a text or body of texts and the implications for our understanding of them
