The volume presents essays dealing with a wide range uses of the written word during the Middle Ages, from the Carolingian era to late medieval Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Burgundy. It presents a panorama of the current state of the research and also offers new insights into the current conceptual debates about the history of communication in premodern Europe.
Research on the practices and impacts of literacy has revolutionized the study of medieval history and culture. After initially having focused on investigating the modernising aspects of the development of literacy during the Middle Ages, the discussion now involves a large variety of topics, such as the performance of writing and reading, the use of the written word in political ritual and, on a general level, the ‘otherness’ of medieval communication. The volume presents essays dealing with a wide range of social and political uses of the written word during the Middle Ages, from the Carolingian era to late medieval Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Burgundy. It presents a panorama of the current state of the research and also offers new insights into the current conceptual debates about the history of communication in premodern Europe.

Review

"L’ensemble donne un excellent aperçu du potentiel légué à l’histoire des textes et de la communication, textuelle ou non, par les approches développées à Münster sous la houlette de Hagen Keller et de quelques autres. Les études de cas présentées sont aussi l’occasion pour le lecteur d’un approfondissement méthodologique et d’une réflexion qui aillent au-delà des exemples donnés; c’est aussi en cela que le volume est un bel hommage à celui qu’il s’est donné pour objectif d’honorer." (Sébastian Barret, dans: Francia-Recensio, 2013/2)

"The book's variety is also its strength, as all authors stay close to the main theme of pragmatic literacy and symbolic communication from a political and Kellerian perspective, and all authors break through the artificial barrier between literacy and orality. (...) The book can undoubtedly function as a model edition for other historians, including church historians and historians of mentality." (Krijn Pansters, in: The Medieval Review, 12.06.36)

"Alles in allem ein begrüβenswerter Band mit anregenden und weiterführenden Beiträgen." (Irmgard Fees, in: Zeitschrift für Historische Forschung, 42.1, 2015, p. 98-99)
