Stemmatology: a bird's eye view
ILC-CNR - Aula Seminari IBF SG 5
Stemmatology, the science of establishing the genealogical relationships between manuscript texts is not even 200 years old and has yet already seen tantalizing debates and discourses.
Its transition into the digital challenges these shaky grounds once again.
Armin Hoenen, who has just submitted his doctoral thesis on this topic at Frankfurt University, will recapitulate this rich history which affects our understanding of historical texts and their transmission profoundly.
