Sample text

43)56 that contains (of relevant material) only capitula and a colloquium, both in a unique version; there is evidence, however, that the version once included a large alphabetical glossary as well. It takes its name from the ­Renaissance scholar Conrad Celtes, who made the only surviving copy in 1495. The material from this version is not included in Goetz’s edition; the colloquium has been published by Dionisotti (1982), and the capitula remain largely unpublished, though a few have been edited piecemeal57 and an edition of the whole is in preparation by ­Rolando Ferri.

The main manuscript (Leiden Voss. Gr. Q. 3 below), a large group of texts (Hadriani sententiae, fables, Tractatus de manumissionibus, ­Hygini genealogia, and a Trojan War narrative), and a colloquium. This is the only Leidensia version manuscript to contain the colloquium, but the same colloquium is also found in the Hermeneumata Stephani; it is therefore known as the colloquium Leidense–Stephani. Two other manuscripts42 contain portions of the capitula and of the other texts (the Hadriani sententiae and, in the Sangallensis only, the beginning of the fables), but not the alphabetical glossary or the colloquium.

67 I am grateful to Rolando Ferri for allowing me to use a draft of his edition of the Hermeneumata Celtis for this analysis. 68 Only eight are common to all six versions, largely because of alterations to the Vaticana version, whose Christian orientation indicates serious rewriting in the post-antique period. 69 It is not possible that such similarities could have developed by coincidence: the capitula all have a common ancestor. Ferri (2011: 154–9) has pointed out that many of the Greek words in the glossary of the Celtis version of the Hermeneumata are not words that would have been used in the conversational language of the imperial period, but Attic or Homeric words that had become archaic.
