Abstract

Charters and deeds are means of communication. They find their authority by being identified as valid within broader social, institutional, and geographical spaces, thus having to display characteristics that will be recognised and accepted in those. As such, they have to manifest their connections to more or less firm networks of interconnected signs of authority. These sessions will explore how layout, graphical signs, and writing could be used to link documents to explicit or tacit semiotic networks of charters, focusing on a choice of exemplary case studies.
