Book Series

Book series on medieval manuscripts from The Ohio State University Press: Text and Context

Text and Context is devoted to the study of manuscript and manuscript culture from late antiquity to the Renaissance. We seek to encompass all aspects of manuscript production, including the material culture of the codex, edition of new texts, manuscript catalogs, and more theoretical studies. The series covers veracular as well as Latin manuscripts, and studies which deal with the interaction of Latin and the vernacular are particularly welcome.
