22-23 April | Introduction to Medieval Spanish Palaeography (800-1500)

During the Middle Ages, the Iberian Peninsula experienced a notable shift in its written production, characterized by transitions from indigenous writing systems to those prevalent in Europe, and later, a return to unique, localized scripts. This dynamic process unfolded unevenly across the diverse regions of the Iberian Peninsula, underscoring not only Spain's rich cultural diversity during medieval times but also the distinct nature of its various kingdoms. 

In this course, students will explore the evolution of Iberian scripts, beginning with the traditional Visigothic script. The curriculum will then delve into the Spanish Caroline minuscule, highlighting its unique features that set it apart from the European standard. Subsequently, the course will examine the Spanish Gothic scripts used in charters, which also exhibit notable differences from the graphic models used both in book production within Spain and elsewhere in Europe.
