Synopses and Lists (II). Textual Practices in the Pre-Modern World
Synopses and lists are found in all kinds of textual materials, from the Eusebian canons to tax lists and genealogies in the Bible and in historiographical works. What is their role in constructing a particular vision of the world and in providing meaningful record of it? What types of synopses and lists exist, e.g. indexes, tables of contents, systems of cross-references, divisions of the text into sections and subsections made visible on the page through the layout, signs, or different scripts? This second workshop on "Synopses and Lists" aims to understand how these texts function in different types of literature, and intends to offer a historical and transcultural perspective.
Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Maroussia Bednarkiewicz (Aga Khan University, London), Lennart Lehmhaus (FU Berlin), Liv Ingeborg Lied (Norwegian School of Theology, Religion and Society, Oslo), Marilena Maniaci (University of Cassino), Matthew P. Monger (Norwegian School of Theology, Religion and Society, Oslo), Peter Tarras (Würzburg), Rebecca Ullrich (Erfurt).
