Time Bound: A Workshop on Computus in Medieval Manuscripts

The one-day workshop will introduce participants to foundational elements of the medieval computus: its astronomical and liturgical basis, mathematical underpinnings, and diverse tables and diagrams. We will consider works of key thinkers on the subjects; working from manuscripts and online resources, we will demonstrate how the system worked in conjunction with the medieval calendar and then practice extracting data from a few examples. Participants are asked to bring laptops and/or iPads.

The workshop will be led by Danielle Joyner (Art History, Lawrence University) and Megan McNamee (Art History, Warburg Institute). Sponsored by the Rossell Hope Robbins Library, the Medieval and Early Modern Studies Protocluster, and the Department of History.
