Publication – « Sicut dicit: Editing Ancient and Medieval Commentaries on Authoritative Texts », dir. S. Boodts, P. De Leemans †, S. Schorn

Commentaries on authoritative texts from Antiquity and the Middle Ages are increasingly being recognized as witnesses to a rich tradition of cultural reception and intellectual engagement. This renewed interest goes hand-in-hand with an increased demand for critical editions of the texts in question. However, the genre of the commentary presents a number of specific challenges to the editor, challenges related to the textual dynamic, the presentation on the page, and the intertwined transmission history of the commentary and the authoritative text that forms its subject. This volume brings together twelve case studies on texts written in Greek and Latin, which range from Antiquity to the Late Middle Ages. Touching upon a variety of fields, including literature, theology, philosophy, medicine, and law, these case studies offer an interdisciplinary perspective on commentaries on authoritative texts and the editors’ challenging work to accurately reconstruct and present them.
