Die Arbeitsweise mittellateinischer Fachschriftsteller. Bemerkungen zur Überlieferung des Thomas Cantimpratensis abbreviatus (Thomas III) digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM - 2010 - 2
The abbreviated version of Thomas of Cantimpré’s Liber de natura rerum, the so-called “Thomas III”, is a striking example of the liberty medieval copyists of specialist prose took in copying a text. They add, omit, rearrange, rewrite the original work in order to improve its contents, acting more as co-authors than as mere copyists. Several versions of the text are recognizable, and MSS trasmitting different stages of rewriting are grouped.
Pier De’ Crescenzi ossia la corsa a ostacoli del traduttore digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM - 2008 - 2
A translator of Pier de’ Crescenzi’s manual on agriculture Ruralia commoda (about 1305-1307) has to surmount various obstacles put as well by the author’s compilatory method and his use of nonlatin vocabulary as by scribal errors in the manuscripts, flaws in the critical edition, and bouts of drowsiness the translator himself is now and then suffering from.
Ein neues fragment von Walahfrid Strabos gedicht De cultura hortorum digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM - 2005 - 2
A recently discovered fly leaf (parchment) displays on the verso side (s. XV) lectiones from a sermon by Fulgentius of Ruspe and a bull by pope Eugene IV, on the recto side (s. X-XI) vv. 23-99 of Walahfrid’s De cultura hortorum, regrettably often illegible as this side had been glued onto the cover. Still this series of verses ist worth being noticed on account of the quality of its text and the special set of glosses.
Der Begriff auctoritas bei Coluccio Salutati digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM - 2004 - 3
An examination of the meaning of auctoritas in Salutati’s writings reveals remarkable changes in the use of the term: official authority has to liaise with individual qualities, and the authority of superior knowledge cannot be accepted without previous assessment of reasonable proof. The submission of authority to individual criticism leads the way from the middle ages to modern times.
