Hardback edition corrections

Post date: Mar 8, 2019 1:18:04 PM

[Originally posted 4 Oct 2018]

A number of scholars brought my attention to errors in the hardback edition. These have been incorporated in the paperback edition printed in October 2018, but this page notes the adjustments to be made to the hardback edition. Thanks to Lukas J. Dorfbauer, J.K. Elliott, Michael W. Holmes, Drew Hartzell, Adam Dunning, Alan Taylor Farnes and Anna Persig for bringing some of them to my attention. Links to manuscript images added in the paperback edition are also noted below.

Subsequent corrections and additions are noted on the Corrections and additions to the Paperback edition.

p. 61. Arnobius the Younger's existence is now considered dubious: the expositions attributed to him treated the Gospels of Matthew, Luke and John.

p. 63. Epiphanius Latinus is a phantom; the Interpretatio Euangeliorum is a compilation probably assembled in Italy in the seventh century.

p. 65. Despite the entry in Gryson 2007, the anonymous commentary known as Pseudo-Theophilus probably originated in northern Italy in the seventh century, and may not have used all the sources mentioned.

p. 67 and 160. There remain doubts over the attribution of PS-HI Mc to CU-D, most recently expressed in the edition by Cahill (CCSL 82).

p. 93, line 8. Paul ] Prosper.

p. 102, line 5. ''Unusually for an Insular text it is written in Caroline minuscule." In fact, Breton scriptoria used Caroline minuscule from the middle of the ninth century: see Deuffic 1986 in the list of additions to the bibliography.

p. 106. correctoriones ] correctiones.

p. 127, line 18. According to Spanish practice the reference should be to 'Ayuso' rather than 'Marazuela'
