The physical aspects of texts – their existence as textual artifacts – may assume a particular prominence that is independent even from the contents of the texts themselves. Circulated and contextualized as objects, texts and inscriptions may impart dual meanings, which may either be complementary or contradictory. As such, manuscripts, inscribed amulets, ornamental objects, and similar artifacts draw complex 'biographies' as the attention alternates between the artifact's textuality and materiality. The biographies of these artifacts invite a variety of interpretive and analytical models, the application of which is dependent on the different degrees of distinction
and integration between the two aspects.
