AbstractThe first of the sessions on the materiality of manuscripts is devoted to the growing field of fragmentology. Using the case of the dismembered Beauvais Missal, Davis explores how the material evidence retained on the leaves can help resolve ambiguities in the sequence, serving as a model for other fragmentological reconstructions. Westwell discusses the processes of reconstruction and categorisation of liturgical fragments, focusing on methodologies applied to establish the provenance of fragments and foregrounding their material state and subsequent re-use. Focusing on the structure and making of the codex, Yavuz considers manuscript fragments utilized as part of the medieval binding process.
