This conference explores how reading experiences between 1450-1600 were shaped both by producers and users of vernacular books. By adopting an international and interdisciplinary perspective (combining book history, literary history, art history, religious studies, and history of knowledge) during the conference and within the foreseen volume, the conference aims to contribute to the next step towards a comparative study of printing strategies and users’ practices in the first 150 years of printing vernacular books in Europe.
Organised by: Humanities Departments of Leiden University and Utrecht University
