AbstractThe multi-text manuscript was a particularly effective medium for disseminating textual traditions across the cultural and linguistic borders of late medieval Europe. Multi-text manuscripts are also themselves, by their nature, full of borders, boundaries, and divisions.

This session, one of a two-session strand on 'Borders in/and Multi-Text Manuscripts', is titled 'Producing Boundaries in Multi-Text Manuscripts'. Focusing particularly on the production of manuscript boundaries, the session includes four papers that examine how different kinds of borders and boundaries were produced, tested, and stretched in a variety of multi-text manuscripts, from financial records to Slavic liturgical books; from decorative borders on the page to boundaries between scribes.
