Artefakte früher Mainzer Schriftkultur

Universitätsmuseum Heidelberg – Kataloge

Despite severe losses the distinctive early medieval translation originating in Mainz offers enough material to convey former quantity and quality. Based on its remains, the labels, the subproject A08 of SFB 933 “Material Text Cultures” organized a small exhibition. This was supported by the Cathedral Museum and grew into the special exhibition “In Gold geschrieben” (Written in Gold) to which a comprehensive catalogue was published. On the basis of these articles, this themed issue documents descriptions of artefacts and material concerning the Middle Ages until the Carolingian era. The selection offers a virtual tour around the early written culture in Mainz.            

Eva Ferro, a medieval Latinist based in Freiburg, was awarded a Mercator-Fellowship during the winter term 2016/17 with the Collaborate Research Centre 933 “Material Text Cultures. Materiality and Writing in Non-Typographic Societies.”

Tino Licht is private lecturer and head of the department for Latin Philology of the Middle Ages and the Modern Era at the Historisches Seminar of Heidelberg University. Within the SFB 933 he manages the subproject „Relic Labels. Materiality and Presence in a Neglected Type of Early Medieval Writing Practice.”

Kirsten Wallenwein’s scholarly practice is mainly concerned with Latin manuscrips from the early Middle Ages. Currently she works as a research assistant on the above-mentioned medieval subproject.
