After a presentation of new theoretical and methodological approaches, the lecturers will engage the participants into a discussion about the approaches selected within the framework of FWO-NWO research project “In Readers’ Hands. Early Modern Dutch Bibles from a Users’ Perspective” (2017-2021), making use of late medieval and early modern printed books from the Plantin Moretus collection.
