Description/Abstract

This piece is a critique of Michael Clanchy’s From Memory to Written Record, commissioned for and written as part of an undergraduate textbook. Its main points are to criticize Clanchy’s view of the relationship between orality and literacy, in line with more recent research, and also to question the close relationship which he draws between writing and preserving documents, and which underpins his view of the uses of writing in the central middle ages.
