«È noto che all'inizio di nuove tradizioni di lingua scritta e letteraria, fin dove possiamo spingere lo sguardo, sta molto spesso la traduzione: sicché al vulgato superbo motto idealistico in principio fuit poëta vien fatto di contrapporre oggi l'umile realtà che in principio fuit interpres, il che significa negare nella storia l'assolutezza o autoctonia di ogni cominciamento.» (Gianfranco Folena, Volgarizzare e tradurre, Torino, Einaudi, 1994)

TEXTUAL TRAILS - TRANSMISSIONS OF ORAL AND WRITTEN TEXTS
11th Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship
Helsinki, 30 October - 1 November 2014

Texts tend to travel across space and time, carried by sound waves, written on parchments and codices, sealed in envelopes and travel trunks, and streaming as bits in the internet. They pass from mouth to mouth, from singers' performances to scholars' notes, from stone engravings to printed books, or from writing desks to digital editions.
