The Poetics Of 'Gentilezza' In The 'Fiore' And The Emergence Of Dante's Political Vision Before The Exile, Robert J. Clines 2022 Western Carolina University

The Poetics Of 'Gentilezza' In The 'Fiore' And The Emergence Of Dante's Political Vision Before The Exile, Robert J. Clines

Bibliotheca Dantesca: Journal of Dante Studies

This essay investigates the political and literary culture of late Duecento Florence as well as the entangled rather than mutually exclusive nature of Dante’s pre- and post-exile political and literary visions. I read Dante’s political vision against the Fiore, a Tuscan form of the medieval French epic Roman de la Rose that appeared in Italy before 1290. Pervasive in Dante’s politics, poetics, and the cultural milieux in which the Fiore appeared are the rejection of French/Provençal cultural dominance, Franco-Angevin political influence in Italy, and mendicants as morally bankrupt threats to civil society. In turn, this essay argues that the …

Collation Model For Ms. Codex 1239: [Monastic Ritual And Passion Sequence]., Dot Porter

Collation Models

A portable monastic libellus, or partial ritual book, describing the administration of rites to an ill monk, the burial rites of a monk or layperson, and the prayers, chants, and processions associated with them; the libellus demonstrates the role of the monks in ensuring proper burial for members of the lay community. The punctus flexus punctuation and the inclusion of St. Hugh of Lincoln, the second-most prominent saint (behind Bruno) in the Carthusian Order, suggest that the manuscript belonged to a Carthusian monastery. The mentions of St. Jerome and St. Katherine of Siena suggest the manuscript may have been tied …

Breviary for use in the diocese of Cologne, probably in the Kölner Dom (cathedral). Made in the 15th century, it was used, annotated, and repaired through to the end of the 18th century. The breviary is preceded by a calendar in which the feasts of Saint Gereon and the Eleven Thousand Virgins, martyrs of Cologne, and of Saint Severin, an early bishop of Cologne, are written in red. The Sanctoral in the breviary itself includes offices for a number of saints associated with Cologne and for the Translation of the Three Kings, associated with relics kept on the high altar …

Lecture notes on Aristotle's Parva naturalia, in many cases indicating the date of the lecture. Each section begins with a summary of its argument, followed by running commentary on the Greek text. Greek headings indicate the text currently under consideration. In between De divinatione ex insomniis and De longa et brevi vita, there also appears a commentary on De motu animalium dated to the same time, which employs the same structure as the other sections. However, the heading follows a different pattern, and the whole work is contained within its own three gatherings. Table of contents the title page (f. …

Work 1, the title of which refers to the "Italian war," seems to concern the War of the League of Cambrai against Venice; a prefatory note and an opening rubric (f. 1v and 2r) appear to make reference to the treaty of Cambrai (tractat zu Camerich), which was concluded in 1529. The work seems particularly concerned with the role of Maximilian I, who is named at the outset of the text (f. 2r) and whose death on 12 January 1519 (f. 116r) is discussed in the conclusion; otherwise, dates referenced in the text are 1511 (f. 31r), 1512 (f. 37r), …

Collation Model For Ms. Codex 83: [Extracts From And Commentaries On Liber Bellorum Domini]., Dot Porter

Collation Models

Excerpts from and commentaries on the Liber bellorum Domini; contains articles 105-112, 192-195 and 142-148. Due to the date, this cannot be the Liber bellorum Domini of St. William of Bourges (1150-1209). Articles 105-112 and 192-195 concern the Albigensian crusade. According to the dealer's description of the manuscript, much of this section might be quoted or derived from the Historia Albigensium of Pierre de Vaux-de-Cernay. Articles 142-148 (f. 24v-32r) concern the 8th-century martyrs Amelius and Amicus. According to the dealer's description and Rudolf Hirsch's notes, this was first printed in the Speculum historiale of Vincent of Beauvais, XXIV, 162-166, 169. …

Collation Model For Ms. Codex 1063: [Book Of Hours] : [Use Of Sarum]., Dot Porter

Collation Models

Book of hours produced in England, probably London, perhaps for a member of a religious confraternity or community. Includes calendar, Office of the Virgin (use of Sarum), Seven Penitential Psalms and incipits of the Gradual Psalms, litany, notated Office of the Dead (use of Sarum), and a variety of prayers. The musical notation in the Office of the Dead is unusual, as is the absence of the prayers Obsecro te and O intemerata. Evidence of use includes erasure of Thomas à Becket from calendar, erasures in text, and 17th-century additions in English to calendar.
