Abstract

Marginal annotations are at the crossroads between the text and its reception. The study of marginalia also concerns the material aspect of the book and comparative analysis of books from all geographical and cultural areas. The spaces left empty around the text become a receptacle for notes, drawings, and scholia that participate in its history. Whether we are considering manuscripts or printed books, or texts ranging from practical writings to liturgical books, including scientific and legal texts, these additions, contemporary or later ones, tell us how a book was used and who used it. They can be analysed in such a way as to give an account of editorial practices (headings, headlines, references, iconography), reading practices and the use of transmitted texts (annotations, glosses, comments), but they also include adventitious additions (mentions of names, lists of books, accounts). Among the issues to be addressed are the function and the utility of the margins, the various system of indexing, the use of the marginalia in teaching or preaching contexts, the status of the annotator, and the relationship – linguistic or explanatory – between the marginal additions and the text.
