Instead, what emerged during this period was the heightened visibility of bibliographical forms that defied medieval England’s own historiography of the book, dominated as it was by the supersessionist paradigm “from roll to codex.” Focusing on books that are neither roll nor codex, and which played a decisive part in the political conflicts of the period, this talk will showcase involution—that is, complexity—as the defining feature of the late medieval history of the book.
