Taxonomies of Knowledge: Information and Order in Medieval Manuscripts. U of Pennsylvania P, 2015, 153 pp. A gorgeously produced book, as is often the case with Penn Press, Taxonomies of Knowledge gathers six essays, most of which were presented at the Fifth Annual Schoenberg Symposium on Manuscripts in the Digital Age with the same title, held in 2012, while one of the essays was presented at an earlier iteration of the symposium. Dedicated to Lawrence J. Schoenberg, founder of the Schoenberg Institute of Manuscript Studies at Penn, the volume explores differing versions of the idea of classification and ordering within and of medieval manuscripts. The six essays work with manuscripts in Latin, English, French, Occitan, and German, while a very short one explores an Arabic text in its relation to Latin, and a small section looks at texts in Catalan, advancing questions of conceptual- ization, disciplinary ordering, and genre classification in a number of disciplines, from poetry to astronomy, from chronicle to sermon to hagiography.
