AbstractThe multi-text manuscript was an important medium for disseminating textual traditions across medieval Europe's cultural and linguistic borders. The contents of these manuscripts are often concerned themselves with negotiating borders, be they geographical, political, or spiritual. This session, one of a two-session strand on 'Borders in/and Multi-Text Manuscripts', focuses on the ways in which borders are negotiating and transgressed in multi-text manuscripts. The session includes four papers that consider different kinds of transgressions in the multi-text manuscript, and the ways in which these codices' design reflects or enables such transgression.
