IMC Leeds 2019. The Materiality of Arboreal Frameworks: Tree Diagrams, Tree Structures, and Branching in the Middle Ages

Organisation : Naïs Virenque et Antoine Paris

This session deals with the materiality of arboreal frameworks (tree diagrams, tree structures, branching) in the Middle Ages. Indeed, arboreal frameworks materialize thought, science and devotion through visual and organisationnal structures. Some members of the « Trames arborescentes » (Arboreal frameworks) project would like to present some recent researches about such a materializing process. Materiality is one of the « Trames arborescentes » main issues, since, in the Middle Ages, every kind of information can be transposed into a tree structure.
