In this talk, we aim to share the main outcomes of the 2020/2021 Humanities project at CAS, “Books Known Only by Title: Exploring the Gendered Structures of the First Millennium Imagined Library.” We present the major tendencies in the source materials, explore the challenge that textless books represent to scholarship and ask how gender matters to a new understanding of the imagined library of the past.
