Abstract

This panel reflects on symbolic and material boundaries in two spaces dedicated to the preservation of written memory: archives and libraries, both lay and religious, with special attention paid to their historical custodians. Jornet-Benito examines how the office of the maestre racional organised documents in Naples from 1338 onwards, while Rodríguez-Parada studies the role of books, libraries, and librarians in the formation of mendicant friars. Fernández-Quintas will analyse how archivists documented the boundaries between the estates of Galician monasteries; and Zozaya studies similar dynamics, but with reference to Madrid’s municipal lands, and particularly cases of conflict.
