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

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.
