Focusing on England, this volume investigates written communication in the two centuries before and after the introduction of printing. It explores the boundaries between script and print and considers the relationship of these media with the culture of speech. Contributors consider the applications of script and print by a variety of individuals, groups and communities in the spheres of religion, law, scholarship and politics. They also reassess long-standing assumptions about the impact of printing and the historical divisions it had come to represent.
