AbstractScholary editions deal with two kinds of materiality: the materiality of the text-bearing objects and the materiality of the edited text. The session will discuss both forms of materiality. Antonella Ambrosio and Vera Schwarz-Ricci confront the print version with the digital version of the scholarly edition of the documents of Santa Maria della Grotta. Dominique Stutzmann discusses how scholarly editing can make use of the immaterial representation of the sources and evolve into a 'distant edition', in which computational methods are inserted in core steps of the editorial process. The digital models necessary to include the materiality of the manuscripts into the digital scholarly edition are the focus of the third paper by Daniela Schulz.
