Medieval indexing...?

Hi everyone,

A further thought on labels-as-indices: what forms of indexing were in use before page/folio numbering? I know scribes used catchwords to keep folios in order - but how did they *index* things? How did they refer to other pages within the same document?

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
