AbstractThe digital humanities have given a new impetus to serial or quantitative approaches to medieval manuscript production. Following the development of quantitative history in the 1950s and 1960s and, more precisely, of quantitative codicology, the field saw the production of numerous important early works. The wider availability of digital data, be it manuscript descriptions, facsimilia or transcriptions, now allows for the constitution of larger corpora and the serial analysis of their features. Through digital and statistical approaches, this session will explore the materiality of objects pertaining to the medieval written production, charters and documents as well as manuscripts.
