Abstract:

"This volume unites six essays related to manuscript culture in Britain. At the collection's core are books made between c. 500 and c. 1200, but other objects that contain writing are discussed as well, including charters and metalwork. The essays highlight, in different ways, the tight relationship between a manuscript's paleographical and codicological features, and the culture in which the object was produced and used. Extending their expertise to a broad audience interested in the medieval book, the contributors discuss various aspects of written culture, including book culture in Mercia, the layout of Anglo-Saxon charters, and the transition from Anglo-Saxon to Norman-inspired script and book production."--Publisher description.
