Le florilegium Claraevallense de Pline l’Ancien (et autour)
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The article focuses on a florilegium of Pliny’s Naturalis historia transmitted by the 12th-century manuscript Montpellier, BIUM, H 473 (m), from the Cistercian abbey of Clairvaux; its main features and role in Pliny’s tradition are analysed on the basis of several witnesses still ignored in critical editions. While normally agreeing with the 11th-century manuscript Berlin, SB-PK, Hamilton 517 (h), m’s text and marginal notes also share innovations with ω, a large Anglo-Norman family descended from h after a thorough revision. This proves that an intermediate copy between h and ω existed, which can thus be included in an overview of the circulation of Pliny’s work in 12th-century France and England.
