The aim is to understand how texts, ideas and authorities gain, loose or maintain their authoritative status as well as the validity over time. Besides the intellectual resons, the contributors will also highlight the social, structural, and institional factors that establish, cultivate or suppress a set of ‘canonical’ and ‘authoritative’ knowledge.
