Abstract

The Cluster of Excellence ‘Understanding Written Artefacts’ follows a comparative approach to studying how the production of written artefacts has shaped human societies and cultures, and how these in turn have adapted written artefacts to their needs. This session focuses on margins and frames of medieval written artefacts. They represent not only the physical and conceptual borders of a core content, but also contribute to structuring and enriching it. Thus they are essential for interpreting written artefacts by contemporary and later readers and viewers.
