Scrineum Rivista <p class="journalHp"><img class="copertina" style="float: left; margin-right: 20px;" src="/public/journals/32/journalThumbnail_it_IT.jpg" alt="SC_Cover" width="200"></p> <p><em><strong>Scrineum </strong></em>is an open access on-line journal founded in 2003 by a group of scholars of Diplomatics, Palaeography and Codicology belonging to several Italian Universities. Its scientific focus lies on the history of the written culture from the Antiquity to the Late Middle Ages and includes the history of the book, of documentation and of writing in the Greek East and the Latin West. An interdisciplinary approach to similar topics concerning Modern History and non-European cultures is promoted. Scrineum publishes double-blind peer-reviewed original articles in the main languages of international scientific communication. It is a “class A journal” (Italian ANVUR classification) encouraging submissions by both well-established and young researchers.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;Editor-in-Chief: <strong>Laura Pani</strong>,&nbsp;Università di Udine, Italy</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<img src="" width="124" height="111"></p> <p><strong>Scrineum Rivista</strong> is indexed in:</p> <table align="center"> <tbody align="center"> <tr> <td align="center" width="170"><img src="/public/site/images/admin/Classe_A2.png" alt="logo ANVUR" height="90"></td> <td align="center" width="170"><img src="/public/site/images/admin/DOAJ_logo.jpg" alt="DOAJ Logo" height="90"></td> <td align="center" width="170"><img src="/public/site/images/admin/ebsco.png" alt="EBSCO logo" height="90"></td> <td align="center" width="170"><img src="/public/site/images/admin/logo_Ulrichs1.png" alt="Ulrichs Logol" height="90"></td> <td align="center" width="170"><img src="/public/site/images/admin/Screen_Shot_2018-01-08_at_16.12___.17___.png" alt="ERIHPLUS_Logo" height="90"></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Edizioni Università di Cassino en-US Scrineum Rivista 1128-5656 <p>Authors retain the copyright and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a&nbsp;<strong>Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Public License (<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">CC-BY-4.0</a>)</strong>&nbsp;that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication.</p> <p><a href="" target="_blank" rel="license noopener"><img src="" alt="Creative Commons License"></a><br>This work is licensed under a&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank" rel="license noopener">Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License</a></p> Un’inedita emptio puellae dalla collezione di Montserrat (T.Monts.Roca inv. 1488).

According to the usual scheme, the crosses are marked by the term <em>σημεῖον</em> ‘sign’ and the name of the signatory written respectively above and below the signs. A subscription written by a third party usually makes it clear that the signatory, although unable to write, signed the document by drawing his <em>σημεῖον</em>. The paper discusses a) the standard structure and variations of this type of signature, b) its spatial and temporal distribution, c) its origin and development, and d) the context in which it was used.</p> Anna Monte ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-12-27 2023-12-27 20 1 29 53 10.6093/1128-5656/10323 Pochi ma buoni. Gli autografi di Heiric di Auxerre <p style="font-weight: 400;">The paper aims to reconsider&nbsp;the handwriting of Heiric of Auxerre from a palaeographical point of view as well as in relation to his biography.&nbsp;A close study of ms. Melk, Stiftsbibliothek, 412 shows that two different hands wrote the notes traditionally attributed to him: it appears that only one of these two hands is Heiric’s, as can be seen through a hitherto neglected Tironian note in the calendar. Moreover, such hand is not the one that wrote ms.

The codex bears clear traces of a mid-fifteenth-century restoration, aimed at filling <em>lacunae</em> of various entities along the text. The presence of two conspicuous errors, respectively between quires 12 and 13, and quire 16 and f. 124, urges further codicological and paleographical investigation on the codex. From this analysis some clues emerge to the existence of two ʻtwinʼ codices, which were merged together, in order to make one manuscript out of two formerly autonomous, damaged witnesses. Eight fragments once belonging to these two copies of the <em>Vita Gregorii</em> and then reused as guard-leaves in other Bobbio manuscripts now preserved in the Ambrosiana and Vaticana Libraries, as well as in the Turin Library itself, corroborate the hypothesis. It thus appears that, shortly after the publication of the biography of Gregory the Great, the Bobbio <em>scriptorium</em> drawn it up in two copies, the one for the abbey library, the other for the nearby small book collection kept at the Spelunca.</p> Chiara Rosso ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-12-27 2023-12-27 20 1 79 120 10.6093/1128-5656/10418 Scrivere tra due mondi: la digrafia e la comunità francese a Roma nel XVI secolo <p style="font-weight: 400;">This paper explores digraphia – the ability for one person to use two different scripts at the same time – in the 16<sup>th</sup>-century French community in Rome, where both <em>cancelleresca italica</em> and modern French cursive coexisted. It aims to verify what influenced French writers to adopt distinct graphic solutions, based on their relationship with the text, language, and function of writing. The phenomenon is mostly represented by professional writers, who were able to master both graphic styles at the same level of expertise. Nevertheless, there are also some writers who employ both scriptures at an usual level, showing a higher degree of contamination. All these writers – particularly when acting as delegated writers – show great awareness in their choice of one graphic style over the other.</p> Federica D'Uonno ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-12-27 2023-12-27 20 1 121 178 10.6093/1128-5656/10506
