AbstractThis session examines heresy in its textual form. It will look at the manuscript traditions, circulation, and reception of certain heretical texts, how medieval writers and thinkers portrayed and conceived of heresy in their own writings, and how inquisitorial authorities may have dealt with heretical texts, as opposed to their human counterparts.
