Abstract

In this session the possibilities of tracing processes of compilation in medieval codices and texts will be discussed in three different instances, ranging from the 9th to the 12th century. The papers will demonstrate that these processes can not only be observed in the textual aspects of a manuscript but also in specific material characteristics. The codicological structure of a manuscript or the usage of certain scribal markings in a text can provide indications of how they were put together and what kind of user the compiler(s) had in mind.
