Description : Read Now Reading English Verse In Manuscript C 1350 C 1500 by Daniel Sawyer and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. reading english verse in manuscript, c.1350-c.1500 is the first book-length history of reading for later middle english poetry. while much past work in the history of reading has revolved around marginalia, this book consults a wider range of evidence, from the weights of books in medieval bindings to relationships between rhyme and syntax. it combines literary-critical close readings, detailed case studies of particular surviving codices, and systematic manuscript surveys drawing on continental european traditions of quantitative codicology to demonstrate the variety, vitality, and formal concerns visible in the reading of verse in this period. the small- and large-scale formal features of poetry affected reading subtly but extensively, determining how readers might move through books and even shaping physical books themselves. readers' responses to one formal feature, rhyme, meanwhile, evince a habitual but therefore deep-rooted formalism which can support and enhance close readings today. reading english verse in manuscript sheds fresh light on poets such as geoffrey chaucer, john lydgate, and thomas hoccleve, but also shows how their works were read in manuscript in the context of a much larger mass of anonymous poems that influenced canonical poems, in a pattern of mutual influence.

Description : Read Now Historia Anglorum by Henry of Huntingdon and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. this is the first complete edition and translation of the historia anglorum (history of the english people) by henry, archdeacon of huntingdon (c.1088-c.1157). the main narrative covers the history of england from the invasions of julius caesar down to the accession of king henry ii in 1154, and includes the only contemporary account of the entire reign of king stephen (1135-54). in the influential circle of successive bishops of lincoln, henry was often at the centre of political life - a practical man whose consciousness of the world extended far beyond the limits of his archdeaconry, a visitor to france and rome. his work is a major source for events in england and normandy in his lifetime. henry's pages are filled with good stories, including the first written record of cnut and the waves, and of henry's death from a surfeit of lampreys. the final two books consist of poems that show henry to be one of the finest of anglo-latin poets. henry's work has never before been published in its entirety. the 1879 edition in the rolls series provided only a latin text, omitted three books and other sections of the text, and failed to take account of several manuscripts. the critical edition in the present volume shows the author's successive revisions and continuations of his text. it is offered with parallel translation and historical notes. the introduction provides a fresh appraisal of henry's career, incorporates new discoveries about his family origins and education, and assesses his importance as a poet and historian.

Description : Read Now Foundations Of Learning by Rolf Hendrik Bremmer and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. no period in the intellectual history of north-western europe has been so formative as the early middle ages, when missionaries transferred the learning accumulated for centuries in the mediterranean basin to recently founded centres of religious scholarship in the ever expanding christian world. the aim of this scholarship focused, first and foremost, on a proper understanding of the bible as god's word and nature as god's creation. during this period the foundations of medieval learning were laid in the monasteries and schools by men from distant shores who considered it their calling to entrust this precious knowledge to future generations of indigenous scholars. in this process, syrians ended up in england, irishmen in italy, and anglo-saxons in frisia and bavaria and thus helped build a common intellectual culture in europe. even though the memories of these missionaries were fed with vast amounts of reproducible knowledge far beyond the capacity of modern man, the most important means of storing and conveying knowledge was the written word stored in what was then modern technology: the parchment codex. the composition of these books reflect the extent and diversity of early medieval learning. sometimes they contain a single work, but often enough they contain compilations of diverse material which at first sight shows little coherence to the modern reader, and rightly so. in a way such miscellanies are mini-libraries. nevertheless, they are storehouses of wholesome learning in their own right; further study reveals a rationale in such collections that leads us to a monastic learning environment, in some cases even to the classroom. the present volume demonstrates how the study of texts and manuscripts combined opens up windows on the early medieval world of learning as represented by glossaries, proto-encyclopedias, biblical companions, hagiographical guides, didactic verse, or descriptions of the world in word and image. the essays demonstrate that scholars have too often concentrated on the study of single texts, but especially that the compilations of manuscripts and libraries reflect the kind of knowledge that was required of monks, ministers and missionaries for the contemplation, celebration and promulgation of the christian message.

Description : Read Now Practice In Learning by Rolf Hendrik Bremmer and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. throughout the early middle ages, education and learning in western europe underwent a substantial development, from italy across the alps, from latin to the vernacular and from secular to (although not exclusively) religious. with latin as its prime medium, developments in education and learning were genuinely international and allowed for a steady exchange of teachers and texts across borders and institutions. members of the fifth-century gallo-roman senatorial classes such as eucherius of lyons and cassiodorus became bishops, abbots or founders of monasteries, and thereby catalysts in the transformation from secular to religious education. then as now intellectuals travelled, taking both their learning and their books with them: theodore of tarsus travelled from the extreme end of the mediterranean to italy and across the alps; john scottus eriugena migrated from ireland to france; boniface from england to germany; while abbo later made a journey from fleury to abingdon and back to name only a few examples. with the mobility of intellectuals comes the movement of texts and books: ranging from pliny's historia naturalis and isidore's etymologiae or the works of bede to many of the smaller texts and fragments which have been the subject of study in the storehouses' project. although almost all of the precise details of classroom practice in the early middle ages remain hidden to the modern eye, and identifiable students' copy books or note-pads are rare, some of the texts and books that have survived still recall the monastic auditorium or schola because of their potential use in the classroom or in view of the texts found in these books. often these texts and manuscripts testify to the international developments outlined above and to the international nature of the world of early medieval learning. the articles in this second volume of storehouses of wholesome learning' emanate from the second workshop in the project, this time held at leiden in june 2005. they focus on illuminating the multifaceted practice of learning by laying bare the exchanges of scholarship between the british isles and the continent. from the development of the foetus, found in bremmer's contribution, to the fifteen signs of doomsday, the encyclopaedic knowledge that was disseminated all over western europe in written texts and, in all likelihood, through oral transmission, featured strongly in the practice of early medieval learning. the subject of that learning was nothing less than life itself, both in the physical and in the spiritual sense of the word.

"books before print -manuscripts- were modified continuously throughout the medieval period. focusing on the ninth and twelfth centuries, this volume explores such material changes as well as the varying circumstances under which handwritten books were produced, used and collected. an important theme is the relationship between the physical book and its users. can we reflect on reading practices through an examination of the layout of a text? to what extent can we use the contents of libraries to understand the culture of the book? the volume explores such issues by focusing on a broad palette of texts and through a detailed analysis of manuscripts from all corners of europe"--publisher's description.
