Abstract

The second of two dedicated to historiographical manuscripts of the European Middle Ages, this session aims at qualifying the importance and the role of said manuscripts among the medieval public. While historiography is often considered a major factor in individual and collective identity-building processes, the survey of material evidence scattered across manuscripts, booklists, mentions of payments, etc., brings about somewhat different perspectives in the studies of medieval historiography diffusion and reception. A more intricate picture arises, wherein various, sometimes contradictory, readings and uses of historiographical works co-exist and overlap throughout time and space.
