Abstract

Selecting and excerpting, summarizing and canonizing, arranging texts and visual signs in manuscripts appear to be universal practices. This volume analyses the fascinating vicissitudes of birth and development, growth and decrease, of manuscripts consisting of more texts (‘multiple-text manuscripts’), at the example of a vast array of manuscript cultures, from the Indian, African, Christian, Islamic, and European domains.

Abstract

The archive is traditionally considered the counterpart of the library, the one storing records, the other housing books. There is evidence, however, that this institutional division of labor reflects certain historical and social constellations. The present volume addresses the question of this complex interrelationship with case-studies from an impressive variety of ancient, traditional, and living cultures.
