Example text

Medieval translations worked creatively with the requirements of medieval culture, making of them, by transformation and manipulation, some of their own most distinctive, successful accomplishments. Other contributions to this volume consider practical, theoretical, and social aspects of these accomplishments. Here the material side is our concern; it will be addressed by referring in detail to a selection of representative manuscripts from the OE and ME periods. ‘Material’ here means the documents in which medieval translations survive— parchment and paper manuscripts, or, as codicologists label them, books (this latter term, used throughout the section for both manuscripts and printed books, neatly collapses the distinction between manuscript and print, which, in any case, late medieval writers and readers probably would not have recognized).

In the name of God I ask of anyone who desires to copy this book that he should correct it by the exemplar, because I don’t have the power to prevent anyone from introducing error through false scribes, and it will then be his error, not mine.
