The symposium aspires to provide an up-to-date overview of the research on juristic literature and on specific groups of manuscripts from various periods from late antiquity to the fifteenth century. Included in this broader objective are methodological essays from the fields of paleography and codicology as well as questions of textual criticism and considerations that draw upon databases and on-line resources. Among the issues to be given special attention are juristic books from the late antique period, Roman and Lombard law in the early Middle Ages, twelfth- and thirteenth-century glossators of Roman and canon law, the transmission of juristic texts in the fourteenth century, and book production for the universities of the fifteenth century. It is also planned to collect the papers and many of the illustrations presented at the symposium in a volume that will also be useful as a reference work on the subject.
