This eBook is
the English translation of the volume Venticinque
lezioni di filologia mediolatina (SISMEL - Edizioni del Galluzzo, 2016).
With its critical case-studies, Paolo Chiesa’s book offers an excellent
training ground for young people approaching medieval Latin studies, as well as
several cues for specialists to reflect on the role played by textual criticism
in literary culture, in relation to its duties, tools and potential
developments. Born out of the author’s own teaching and research work, the
volume testifies to the vigour of textual criticism within medieval Latin
studies, underlining its indispensable role as a method of inquiry and as a tool
for the acquisition of knowledge.
