AbstractPopes and Emperors appear with frequency in medieval epigraphic practices. They can appear as the sponsors or the subjects of the inscriptions in a lot of epitaphs. The first session dedicated to medieval epigraphy would like to focus on the paleographic and linguistic aspects of imperial and papal funerary inscriptions in order to determine whether they present some specific 'imperial' forms. What kind of Empire can be seen through these epitaphs? By studying how popes and emperors used the epigraphic objects, the three papers presented in this session will deal with the commemorative and symbolic aspects of medieval inscriptions.
