This Companion to Twelfth-Century Schools provides a comprehensive update and new synthesis of the last three decades of research. The fruit of a contemporary renewal of cultural history among international scholars of medieval studies, this collection draws on the discovery of new texts, the progress made in critical attribution, the growing attention given to the conditions surrounding the oral and written dissemination of works, the use of the notion of a “community of learning”, the reinterpretation of the relations between the cloister and the urban school, and links between institutional history and social history.

Ben prima di Adamo di Brema e di Elmoldo di Bosau, la lotta condotta dagli imperatori del Sacro romano impero per la conquista degli immensi territori a est dell'Elba, abitati da genti slave indomite e pagane, è stata mirabilmente raccontata da Tietmaro di Merseburgo (957-1018), devoto uomo di chiesa e scaltro e bizzoso politicante.
Nella sua prosa irta e possente, si delinea un Medioevo dell'anno Mille in cui la storia accurata del periodo ottoniano si mischia con i racconti di fantasmi, si popola dei revenants che abitano la notte, si colora di prodigi nel cielo e di cruente battaglie sulla terra.
Documento di fondamentale rilevanza della storiografia medievale, ma anche opera di straordinario valore letterario, il Chronicon di Tietmaro, scrupolosamente tradotto e curato da Piero Bugiani, viene qui presentato per la prima volta al lettore italiano con testo originale a fronte, in un'edizione scientificamente rigorosa e aggiornata.

The study of Latin florilegia has gathered considerable momentum in recent years driven, in part, by the "New Philology", a theoretical approach to manuscript scholarship that regards textual variants not as corruptions of the original text, but as "authentic witnesses" in their own right. This growing emphasis on textual traditions is directly relevant to medieval florilegia, handy reference works that were widely employed prior to the twentieth century by writers of both vernacular and Latin texts to find eloquent, authoritative quotations from venerable authors. Although these collections of classical, patristic, and medieval quotations are by their nature derivative, they are increasingly recognized as valuable witnesses to historical mentalités. The selection and organization of these textual fragments not only reflects the intellectual milieux of their compilers, but also influenced later intellectual contexts.

First book-length study of the elegiac love poem Versus Eporedienses (ca. 1080)
The Versus Eporedienses (Verses from Ivrea), written around the year 1080 and attributed to a certain Wido, is a highly fascinating elegiac love poem celebrating worldly pleasures in an age usually associated with contemptus mundi. One of the poem's intriguing features, its extensive use of the Latin classics, especially of Ovid, makes it a precursor of the poetry of the so-called twelfth-century renaissance. In this first book-length study of the poem, the author provides a historical contextualisation, an edition and translation, a verse-by-verse commentary, a detailed analysis of the classical sources and a discussion of its similarities with contemporary and later medieval poetry.
