Abstract

Much has been said and written on text edition, and maybe even more on its modern, digital forms. That new technologies allow dramatic developments in the shaping and dissemination of medieval text has become a commonplace. Yet, much remains to be explored, in both the technical and epistemological aspects of the subject. The present session focuses on how these changes are causing not only evolutions in the editorial techniques, but also shifts in the fundamental approaches to editing documents and in the positioning of text editions within historical practices and discourses.
