The papers in this volume are the outcome of an international workshop that was held at the Department of Medieval Studies, Central European University, Budapest. They concentrate on problems of the occurense, usage, and patterns of the spoken word in written and visual sources of the Middle Ages. The volume deals with the role and contents of direct and indirect speech in textual evidence or in relation to it, such as chronicles, travel descriptions, court- and canonization-protocols, sermons, testaments, law-books, literary cources, drama, etc. It tries to analyze the function of oral expressions in connection with late medieval images.
