In literary studies, medieval manuscripts are important as vessels of knowledge and culture, through which texts and traditions are preserved and passed down to us. Each manuscript has its own history and artistic style which reflect the times of its production. These artistic and stylistic details often serve as keys to our understanding of the background of the text(s) and author(s) contained in it. This talk focuses on the materiality of medieval manuscripts, offering a brief introduction to late medieval manuscript production and reading, providing a glimpse into the colorful and imaginative world of medieval manuscript marginality and its interplay with texts.
