William of Conches: Glosulae de magno Prisciano
Under the direction of Édouard Jeauneau, a team of students from the Centre for Medieval Studies – Andrew Dunning, Annika Ekmann, Gregory Maxwell, and William Pemberton – are preparing an edition of the Glosulae de magno Prisciano, a commentary by William of Conches on Priscian’s Institutes. The work is a fascinating glimpse into the understanding of Latin grammar in the twelfth century, and is fully preserved in only two manuscripts, each of which represents a different version of the text. The book will be published by Brepols in the series Corpus Christianorum, Continuatio Mediaevalis.
