Article and editorial in the eighth issue of MEMO, conceptualised by the ONAMA team.

The eighth issue of the journal MEMO (Medieval and Early Modern Material Culture Online), conceived by the ONAMA team, has been published with the title MEMO 8: Erzählende Dinge. Funktionen der Objekte in Narrativen in Mittelalter und Frühneuzeit.

For this edition, we were able to invite several authors and interview partners who approach objects in narratives from a variety of perspectives. Read more in our editorial Erzählende Dinge. Vorwort zur achten Ausgabe von MEMO, which also outlines some central questions.

We present ONAMA in detail in the article Needful Things. Die Relationen der Dinge in einer Ontologie mittelalterlicher Narrative. In it, a series of case studies complement the descriptions of the ontology.

We would like to thank the editors of the MEMO series for the opportunity to publish this thematic journal.
