Abstract

Glosses are an excellent way to study practices of reading and writing. What did readers do with their texts? How did they use them and fit them out with the tools they found useful for their reading? In their books they left traces that allow us to interpret their practices of reading, remembering, teaching, editing, discussing, et cetera. In two sessions, case studies will be presented to showcase the material and what they have to offer to our understanding of the medieval intellectual world. The first focuses on grammar and multiple languages, the second on teaching and education.
