Palaeographical and linguistic challenges in editing Late Tamil Manipravalam versions of Sanskrit texts

Multilingualism is an important feature in manuscript cultures and deserves to be studied as such. It may take different forms: influence of several languages in the process of creation of literary or documentary works or in the process of copying; translation, adaptation and reception of works in other cultures than their original one; migration of writers and manuscripts; oppression or suppression of languages and their resilience in manuscript cultures, etc. In this lecture series we will examine the specific problems posed by multilingual manuscript or epigraphic traditions, for which an adequate methodology needs to be designed.
