Contextualizing Texts: Brief Remarks about the First Visigothic Symposium

Abstract : Taking as a starting point the First Visigothic Symposium, I arouse a debate about the contextualization of texts. There is no contradiction between narrow and broad contextualization, there is only a difference of focus. However, I would like to emphasize this point: everybody agrees that it is anachronistic to study an author of the past while ignoring everything of the time when he or she lived, but it is no less anachronistic to study an author of Late Antiquity or the Early Middle Ages while ignoring her or his patristic anchorage.
