Today I wrote a new blog post for the ‘Post-imperial priests’-project, where I delve deeper into a network of episcopal handbooks. After working on the manuscript Troyes, MJC, Ms. 1979 for a while, I noticed that there are various other manuscripts with comparable contents from the same period. In the coming months, I will examine this network further to hopefully know more about tenth-century bishops and their priests. The blog post can be seen as a first step in that direction.

For my post I tried to visualise the network using Flourish. How useful this is exactly, I don’t know. It cannot display multiple links between nodes (manuscripts sharing more than one text), for instance. Still, it was fun and might be useful in the future.
