(p.201) 9 Medieval Remediations
Comparative Textual Media

Jessica Brantley

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter emphatically reminds us that media did not begin with the printing press (a point that William Johnson also makes clear). Moreover, Brantley argues for the particular insights that medieval media can bring to media archeology and media theory. Rather than present us with epochal shifts, she argues, medieval media enable us to see gradations of change in which innovation and tradition interact in ongoing negotiations over meaning. Illustrated with a brilliant reading of a medieval Pater Noster, Brantley shows the interaction with image and text, Latin and vernacular.
