Abstract

This session will investigate visible and invisible demarcations in medieval texts. It will also reflect on how modern editions can be misleading when it comes to text composition and paratexts. The session spans from early medieval to late medieval case studies ranging from Carolingian annals to incunabula in order to answer questions like how multiple texts within one book were separated from one another, how different parts of one text were marked and differentiated within one text. Or how modern editions of medieval manuscripts can reflect decisions of division or missing divisions.
