Sharon Arbuthnot

pdf iconDownload PDF

pp. 1-12

‘Compilation’ is a largely self-explanatory term. Used of a medieval literary activity, it refers to a recycling process whereby extracts culled from a variety of manuscript sources are cobbled together to create new texts. In a crude, although convenient, analogy, one might suggest that compiling is the textual equivalent of creating a mosaic – ...

Pieter Borghart

pdf iconDownload PDF

pp. 61-80

The period of the High Middle Ages (twelfth-thirteenth century) is often regarded as a ‘renaissance’ of the ancient philosophy from a cultural historical point of view.

Le Le Roman de la Rose, on le sait, est généralement attribué à deux auteurs: Guillaume de Lorris, qui aurait laissé, vers 1230, une oeuvre inachevée; et Jean de Meun, son continuateur, quarante ans plus tard. On connaît aussi l'importance de ce texte ainsi que l'influence prodigieuse qu'il a exercée sur les lettres et sur la pensée durant trois siècles: ...

Geert H.M. Claassens

pp. 101-116

Books make great gifts. In fact, a book is always a double gift: an object, and a text. These days such a gift is a relatively straightforward affair, in the sense that there are plenty of books on offer, which is evidently not to say that giving a book is always a cheap option. ...

Whereas miniatures or historiated initials generally attempt to illustrate the relevant text, marginal images need not do so. The abundant marginal decorations in psalters and prayer books are often text-independent, for they usually do not illustrate the accompanying religious text. ...

pp. 197-218

La contribution de la philologie à une réflexion générale sur le thème du recyclage et de la translation des images dans les manuscrits et dans les textes présente divers intérêts.

This contribution deals with a topic which, like a medal, has two sides, an Italian one and a Bruges one. Both parts started to be studied some forty years ago, in the sixties of the last century.1 They each had a quite independent development, not unlike two tracks of a railway, which have the same starting point, but may or may not ever meet again. ...
