Abstract

In the past couple of years research on fragments has been more intense than ever. Projects, blogs, books, and conferences have been devoted to left-overs from manuscripts re-used by bookbinders as well as to manuscripts that were cut up and sold as single leaves by book dealers. To facilitate this research the scholarly network Fragmentarium (University of Fribourg, Switzerland) wants to provide an international and interdisciplinary research environment. In two sessions on fragments scholars will discuss challenges and potentials of fragmentology on the verge from the analogue to the digital age.
