Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum, Volume 7

Medieval and Renaissance Latin Translations and Commentaries, Annotated Lists and Guides

Considered a definitive source for scholars and students, this highly acclaimed series illustrates the impact of Greek and Latin texts on the Middle Ages and Renaissance. In publication since 1960 and now in its eighth volume, the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum furnishes concrete evidence of when, where, and how an ancient author was known and appreciated in monastic, university, and humanist circles. Each article presents a historical survey of the influence and circulation of a particular author down to the present, followed by an exhaustive listing and brief description of Latin commentaries before 1600 on each of his works. For Greek authors, a full listing of pre-1600 translations into Latin is also provided. Sources of translations and commentaries include both printed editions and texts available only in medieval and Renaissance manuscripts.

ABOUT THE EDITORS:

Virginia Brown is Professor of Latin Palaeography at the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, Toronto. James Hankins is Professor of History at Harvard University. Robert A. Kaster is Kennedy Foundation Professor of Latin Language and Literature at Princeton University. Contributors to the volume include Michael Idomir Allen, José-Ignacio García Armendáriz, David Marsh, Monique Mund-Dopchie, Patricia J. Osmond, Marianne Pade, Robert B. Todd, and Robert W. Ulery, Jr.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK:

"Anyone who pursues studies in the Classics will eventually come across the largest research project ever conducted in the field: the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum (CTC). . . . The CTC illustrates through its own sheer magnitude the immeasurable influence that the study of the Classics had on the development and thought throughout the Middle Ages and beyond. . . . The groundwork the CTC has been—and is still—laying through the publication of its articles will help future scholars definitively ascertain 'how much the Middle Ages, how much the Renaissance, how much each century or generation within those larger periods actually knew of the ancient Greek and Latin literatures'. . . . The decades of research that have gone into the CTC will create a lasting record of over a thousand years of scholarship that otherwise would have gone unnoticed or disregarded by modern academia and would have eventually been lost to the world. . . . It is a project that has been and will continue to be indispensable in understanding the West's cultural roots."—Persephone
