Four Hundred Years of the Brut

Contact: Ken Tiller (
Modality: Virtual
The collection of semi-legendary historical texts known as the Brut is witnessed by over four hundred manuscripts in English alone, many of which have been brought to light in the past few decades. This proposed session provides a forum for scholars to share findings about the Brut manuscripts, including new discoveries in individual manuscripts, comparisons of variant texts, and examination of paleographic and codicological features. The session especially encourages papers that compare various manuscripts, compare different manuscripts hands, examine manuscript features such as illustration and rubrication, and / or discuss the genealogy of the Brut.
