L’epitaffio di santa Marcellina
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
A Latin verse inscription (inc. «Marcellina tuos cum vita resolveret artus») was written for the tomb of Marcellina, sister of the bishop of Milan St. Ambrose. The original stone, placed on the burial in the Milanese basilica martyrum at the time of bishop Simplicianus (397-401), has been lost. The epigram, however, is transmitted by two medieval manuscripts (9th and 11th century), and by the Collectanea of Andrea Alciato (1492-1550), who modified several details of the text for the sake of improving it, in keeping with his humanist taste. The manuscript tradition of the poem is investigated and a critical edition with translation and commentary is provided.
