Many questions currently debated by translation theorists can be traced back to medieval thinkers’ discussions about the complexity of language, identity and cultural difference. The twelve contributions in this volume bring modern ideas into dialogue with examples of medieval practice, demonstrating how this approach can illuminate such topics as the politics of multilingualism; the translator’s role as interpreter or author; translation in conflict situations; and the concept of untranslatability.
