Medieval Book Scripts (5 ECTS)

This course introduces students to a range of scripts used for copying medieval books (focusing in particular on the Latin tradition, but also incorporating vernacular examples). In addition to teaching skills for reading such scripts, it will also contextualise the development, presentation, and use of various book scripts within medieval written culture. Throughout students will learn up-to-date methodologies for studying book scripts, while also engaging with current research perspectives on scribal practice and script proliferation.
