The event aims to communicate to a wider audience the results of investigations carried out by the team members during the first three years of its existence. This Conference is also intended to provide an overview of the development of research on illuminated legal manuscripts in Europe, on cataloging, digitization and materiality of these manuscripts with the aim of bringing together renowned experts on the subject and reflecting on the methodological implications and practical and theoretical challenges that this investigation entails.
