Books of exempla : spreading, reception and uses (XIIIth-XVth century)

Project: PHD

Project Details


The aim of the project is the study of real publics and concrete uses of exempla collections. The manuscripts of these collections will be examined in three different ways : by analysing them as material objects; by considering them as cultural medium (versions, surrounding works...); by studying their peregrinations through history (purchases, bequests...).
