AbstractMedieval inscriptions are usually studied in the frameworks of national or local editing projects. It allows a quick publication of an important number of texts but one lacks a global view of some cultural phenomena which can have let their print in medieval epigraphic practices. The second session dedicated to medieval epigraphy would like to explore one of these complex notions: the graphic implications of Empire in the inscriptions. We all know that consequences had the Carolingian reform on paleographic choices in 9th and 10th centuries. What about inscriptions? Can we draw imperial spaces thank to the study of epigraphic texts? The papers of this session will try to answer that question by studying inscriptions from different regions (Spain, Italy, France).
