'Let me slip into something less comfortable': Gothic Textualis by Accident and by Design

This lecture concerns the supposed 'decadence' of late gothic textualis, especially the more formal grades, whether it entailed effort or conscious design, and instances when individuals misunderstood it or slipped.

Attendance free. Part of the Medieval Manuscripts Seminar Series.
