Gesture – Pt 1 Europe

I’ve found a long list of sources already online, on a site called ‘Pearl’. Covers the west for the 11thC – the 16thC.

Some entries are old ones, but most of the links seem to be working.

Here’s the link to ‘Pearl’s blog’

and just to whet your appetite, the list below makes up one of the entries. There are 12  altogether. Tag is ‘sign language’.

  • Bragg, Louis “Visual-Kinetic Communication in Europe Before 1600: A Survey of Sign Lexicons and Finger Alphabets Prior to the Rise of Deaf Education” Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education (2)1, 1997 1-25 [PDF]
