Abstract

This report explores the use of menologies, the calendars of saints for the entire year that are often appended to medieval gospel and apostolus manuscripts, as a tool for clustering the manuscripts and formulating hypotheses about textual transmission and diffusion. We regard manuscripts that share calendar entries (i.e., commemorate the same saints or holy events on the same dates) as analogous to people in the modern world who share Facebook friends, and we employ social network software to examine these networks of “friendships.”
