Sample text

Not long after it was written, the codex was housed in southeastern Germany, probably at the monastery of St Emmeram in Regensburg. ” If this indeed refers to our codex M, as the catalogue’s editors believe, then M had to be in Regensburg before 985. Hence, I believe that M was written shortly after 980. Around 1493 Conrad Celtis saw this manuscript at St Emmeram. Assisted by Erasmus Dawm, a monk at St Emmeram and an advocate of Humanist 11 For example, in the legend Maria (v. 54, fol. 4v), a double dot over the first syllable of mandatis connects that word to the genitive legis, which has the same sign over its first syllable.

He wantonly pulled the interior of the book out of its binding and divided it into parts for the sake of easier reading. As the edition was being printed, our fine manuscript M was subjected to another abuse. The typesetters placed damp sheets of paper between several folios and, in so doing, defaced them with their black printer’s ink. The editio princeps of Hrotsvit’s works was finally published in 1501, adorned by (inter alia) two woodcuts from the expert hand of Albrecht Dürer. After Celtis returned the codex to St Emmeram, it was examined by Dionysius Menger, who prepared a new catalogue of the monastery’s library in 1500–01.

Celtis rightly considered M of greatest authority. , before the middle of the 11th century. Accordingly these corrections ought not to be disregarded. The text of M was changed even after k was written, and although by strict application of text-critical principle the readings of k should be disregarded, some of the changes made in M must be evaluated with their help.
