Abstract

Caroline minuscule is a script variously associated with reform and renewal, from its origin in the Carolingian renaissance to its introduction into England via the Benedictine reform to its renewal in the scripts of humanist scholars. The Network for the Study of Caroline Minuscule exists as an international forum for scholars interested in the study of manuscripts written in Caroline minuscule and the palaeographical issues they raise. This session is dedicated to the analysis of script in the Carolingian era, beginning with a broad overview of 9th-century manuscripts and proceeding to two papers on particular manuscripts.
