Interconnected Texts. A graph-based computational approach to Byzantine paratexts as nodes between textual transmission and cultural and linguistic developments (01G02821)

This project aims to study patterns in a corpus of paratexts from Byzantine manuscripts, to elucidate the interconnectedness of material book production, motivations for textual transmission, and linguistic developments. This will aid, and be aided by, the development of new digital tools, equipped to detect variations and patterns in a fluid, fragmented, and heavily entangled textual corpus.
