Abstract

Augustine of Hippo was such central an authority in the early Middle Ages that his reception may sometimes seem hard to historicise. In recent years, several studies have shown how especially careful work on manuscripts can yield a better understanding of how Augustine’s texts spread and how they were used. The four papers in this session, by an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars, examine how Augustine’s texts and ideas crossed borders from the 6th to the 9th centuries, migrating not only from one historical context to another but across the borders of one manuscript into another.
