Editorial Reviews


'... this transcultural investigation is the fruit of comparative and collaborative scholarship at its best. It is, to use the editors' coinage, a 'symphilological' achievement that will leave its readers with a habit of stopping to think about the particularity of scholarly practices and its implications for the history of ideas. All the contributions are lucidly written with a cross-disciplinary audience in mind and beautifully documented with images, tables, and transcriptions of the evidence discussed ... the choice to let the individual contributions speak for themselves, along with the work of comparison and juxtaposition germane to the textual practice of the essay collection, seems a forceful methodological statement for a project that places the case study at the heart of its epistemic undertaking.' Tania Demetriuo, Isis Review

Book Description

This book presents a major collection of essays that expand our vision of the history of textual practices. It explores the multiple ways across time and cultures in which texts have been selected for entry into official canons and then verified, corrected, glossed, interpreted, illustrated, excerpted, performed, archived, and otherwise put to use.
