Abstract

In the wake of a J.N. Adams’ many important publications on bilingualism in Latin Antiquity, this panel assembles three experts to examine issues of bilingualism in the Late Antique and Medieval Latin West. Our three panelists represent Germanic, Gaulish (Ancient Celtic), and Romance, and will consider many different types of authors and texts.
