"Les lettrés du Moyen Âge ont trouvé dans le commentaire de Servius à Virgile une ample matière mythographique et une méthode de lecture active, pouvant nourrir l'interprétation des poètes antiques et l'invention de nouvelles fictions. Jusqu'à la fin de la Renaissance les éditions de l'Énéide n'étaient pas séparées de ces gloses, dont nous publions ici le premier livre, traduit intégralement pour la première fois en français. Plutôt que d'isoler ce qui relèverait plus spécifiquement de la mythographie, nous avons voulu permettre au lecteur d'aujourd'hui, peu familiarisé avec les anciens grammairiens, d'en apprécier la foisonnante multiplicité d'approches. Expliquer la complexité des formules poétiques, comme le fait Servius, n'est pas seulement faire oeuvre d'éducateur, c'est un geste herméneutique qui révèle la richesse polysémique des mythes et des fictions. Les anciens qui apprenaient à lire dans Virgile trouvaient dans les mythes une initiation à toutes les sciences, et leur pratique de l'interprétation était assez ouverte pour laisser libre cours à l'imagination. C'est le poète à l'oeuvre que révèle la lecture de Servius, dans sa manière de donner sens aux choses par les mots. L'ensemble des gloses antiques et médiévales transmises depuis le Ier siècle sous le nom de Servius fait partie du patrimoine culturel européen, pour avoir exercé des générations de lecteurs à relier culture lettrée, connaissance de la nature et sciences de l'homme."--P. [4] of cover.

  • Introduction
  • The "Anonymus Aurelianensis III"
  • The commentator's text of the Analytica priora
  • The "Anonymus Aurelianensis III" and the ancient tradition
  • The edition and notes
  • Conspectus siglorum
  • Anonymus Aurelianensis III in Aristotelis analytica priora.
"This is the first critical edition of the earliest known Latin commentary on Aristotle's Prior Analytics, the Anonymus Aurelianensis III. In addition to the critical text, Christina Thomsen Thörnqvist's edition contains a comparative analysis of the anonymous commentary and the extant Greek commentaries as well as a full comparison between Boethius' translation and the translation used by the commentator. The edition provides a solid foundation for further study on the earliest medieval exegesis on the Prior Analytics and is an essential resource for any scholar who wants to learn more about the development of logic in general and the medieval reception of Aristotelian syllogistic in particular."-- Provided by publisher.

  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
This is the first complete modern edition of the early charters of Chertsey Abbey in Surrey, one of the most important of the English medieval monasteries, and one which appears to have had a nearly continuous existence from its seventh-century foundation until it was surrendered to Henry VIII's commissioners in 1537. The pre-Conquest archive is fairly small and has a poor reputation; indeed, the majority of the sixteen extant charters are obvious fabrications (which have their own importance in throwing light on the later medieval history of the house). But the archive does contain ancient documents of enormous interest: a charter which has claims to be the earliest surviving Anglo-Saxon diploma; a seventh-century episcopal charter; a diploma of King Aethelred 'the Unready' which adds to the evidence about the development of London around the year 1000; and an authentic writ of Edward the Confessor, again referring to London. In this volume all the extant diplomas are expertly edited, with extensive commentaries on their content and implications. A thorough introduction comprises a new synthesis of Chertsey's early history, discussion of the history of the archive and of the later medieval background to the fabrication of the purportedly early documents, and painstaking analysis of the history of the landed endowment. This volume also includes editions of four papal privileges said to have been obtained on the monastery's behalf in the Anglo-Saxon period, of which two or perhaps three are genuine or have a genuine basis.

  • Preface -- Timeline -- Introduction -- Latin text (Peterson, OCT 1911) -- Commentary -- Glossary of rhetorical terms -- Maps -- Bibliography.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
Perhaps no other single Roman speech exemplifies the connection between oratory, politics and imperialism better than Cicero's De Provinciis Consularibus, pronounced to the senate in 56 BC. Cicero puts his talents at the service of the powerful "triumviri" (Caesar, Crassus and Pompey), whose aims he advances by appealing to the senators' imperialistic and chauvinistic ideology. This oration, then, yields precious insights into several areas of late republican life: international relations between Rome and the provinces (Gaul, Macedonia and Judaea); the senators' view on governors, publicani (tax-farmers) and foreigners; the dirty mechanics of high politics in the 50s, driven by lust for domination and money; and Cicero's own role in that political choreography. This speech also exemplifies the exceptional range of Cicero's oratory: the invective against Piso and Gabinius calls for biting irony, the praise of Caesar displays high rhetoric, the rejection of other senators' recommendations is a tour de force of logical and sophisticated argument, and Cicero's justification for his own conduct is embedded in the self-fashioning narrative which is typical of his post reditum speeches. This new commentary includes an updated introduction, which provides the readers with a historical, rhetorical and stylistic background to appreciate the complexities of Cicero's oration, as well as indexes and maps.

  • Preface -- Abbreviations of Modern Reference Works and Corpora -- Ancient References -- Introduction -- Text and Translation -- Commentary -- Bibliography.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
This volume offers a full analysis of one of the more intriguing works by a figure who is central to our understanding of Late Antiquity and early Christianity: the translator, exegete, and controversialist Jerome (c.347-419/20AD). The neglected text of the Vita Malchi - or, to use Jerome's title, the Captive Monk - recounts the experiences of Malchus, a monk abducted by nomadic Saracens on the Eastern fringe of the fourth-century Roman Empire, in what today is the border region between southern Turkey and Syria. Most of this short, vivid, and fast-paced narrative is recounted by Malchus in the first person. The volume's introduction provides background information on the author, Jerome, and the historical and linguistic context of the Life, as well as detailed discussion of the work's style and its reception of earlier Christian and classical literature, ranging from its relationship with comedy, epic, and the ancient novel to the Apocryphal Apostolic Acts and martyr narratives. An exposition of the manuscript evidence is then followed by a new edition of the Latin text with an English translation, and a comprehensive commentary. The commentary explores the complex intertextuality of the work and provides readers with an understanding of its background, originality, and significance; it elucidates not only literary and philological questions but also points of ethnography and topography, and intellectual and social history.

"Liudprand (vers 920-972 ?), originaire de Pavie où il entra dans la carrière ecclésiastique, est un témoin privilégié des vicissitudes politiques du Xe siècle. Retour d'une ambassade à Constantinople menée pour le compte du roi d'Italie Bérenger II en 949, il s'exila en Germanie : un choix gagnant, qui lui valut de devenir évêque de Crémone en 962, au moment où Otton 1er vint ceindre la couronne impériale à Rome. C'est à la cour ottonienne qu'il fit ses armes d'écrivain d'église, en composant un sermon pour les fêtes de Pâques. Mais Liudprand est surtout connu pour son oeuvre historiographique engagée. Avec la Rétribution (Antapodosià), il répond à une sollicitation de son confrère mozarabe d'Elvire (Grenade), en dressant une "histoire des empereurs et des rois de toute l'Europe" depuis l'éclatement de l'empire carolingien en 888 jusqu'à son temps, et dans laquelle le point de vue alterne entre l'Italie, la Germanie et Byzance. Il s'agit en réalité de justifier les prétentions ottoniennes sur l'Italie. L'Histoire d'Otton est un court pamphlet qui veut donner le point de vue du nouvel empereur saxon sur les conditions discutées de l'éviction du pape Jean XII, en 964. Enfin, l'Ambassade à Constantinople, récit d'un autre séjour dans l'Orient grec, en 968, dresse un tableau aussi noir que précis des usages diplomatiques byzantins. Au fil de ses écrits, Liudprand, l'évêque courtisan spécialiste des relations diplomatiques, délivre un message moral sans cesse répété sur la responsabilité qu'implique le libre arbitre. Il le fait dans un style alerte farci de références classiques, maniant sans retenue l'invective, la harangue et les scènes hautes en couleur teintées d'un humour scabreux, qui ont beaucoup fait pour la légende noire du "siècle de fer". La présente traduction donne pour la première fois accès à l'intégralité du texte en français, en regard du latin. Elle est précédée d'une présentation historique et littéraire et s'accompagne d'un commentaire nourri, avec un accent particulier sur l'identification des sources."--P. [4] of cover.

20. Magna Carta [2015]

Book
xvi, 594 p. ; 20 cm
With a new commentary by David Carpenter "No free man shall be seized or imprisoned, or stripped of his rights or possessions, or outlawed or exiled, or deprived of his standing in any other way, nor will we proceed with force against him, or send others to do so, except by the lawful judgment of his equals or by the law of the land." Magna Carta, forced on King John in 1215 by rebellion, is one of the most famous documents in world history. It asserts a fundamental principle: that the ruler is subject to the law. David Carpenter's commentary draws on new discoveries to give an entirely fresh account of Magna Carta's text, origins, survival and enforcement, showing how it quickly gained a central place in English political life. It also uses Magna Carta as a lens through which to view thirteenth-century society, focusing on women and peasants as well as barons and knights. The book is a landmark in Magna Carta studies. 2015 is the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta's creation - an event which will be marked with exhibitions, commemorations and debates in all the countries over whose constitutions and legal assumptions the shadow of Magna Carta hangs.
