Languages of publication
This paper argues that Old Polish almanacs could be seen as documents of the process of „the surfacing into visibility (and more especially into print), of certain kinds of popular or practical knowledge and their legitimation by some academic establishments”(Burke 2005, 14-15), and that their authors played a role of “animators of the Old Polish textual community”. Using a particular copy of an almanac for the year 1696, containing handwritten annotations, I examine the dynamics of this textual community and demonstrate that its discourse was rooted in orality, academic knowledge, and practical, local knowledge.
