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.

La science à Byzance a rarement été explorée de manière systématique. Premier du genre, ce recueil d'articles met en lumière les disciplines, les réalisations et les contextes de la science byzantine à travers les onze siècles de l'empire.
Après une introduction sur la science à Byzance et une étude de la christianisation et de l'enseignement des sciences, il offre une vue d'ensemble complète et actualisée des disciplines scientifiques développées à Byzance, des sciences exactes aux sciences naturelles, en passant par la médecine, l'art militaire et les sciences occultes.
Le volume souligne la diversité et la présence vivace des différentes entreprises scientifiques du monde byzantin au cours de sa longue histoire. Il vise à faire entrer ce domaine dans des conversations plus larges au sein des études byzantines, des études médiévales et de l'histoire des sciences.

Jean Scot Érigène, Carmina, De Imagine, éd. Michael W. Herren, Andrew Dunning, Giovanni Mandolino et Chiara O. Tommasi (éd.), Turnhout, 2020.

John Scottus Eriugena's poetry reflects not only his central philosophical and theological ideas, but also his literary education and his life at the court of Charles the Bald. This corpus of Eriugena's poetry includes recent discoveries of new items. Works laid under contribution by the poet have also been expanded.
De Imagine represents the Latin translation of Gregory of Nyssa's treatise on the creation of man (De opificio hominis), a text that had already attracted the attention of Dionysius Exiguus in the sixth century. Probably a juvenile work, it witnesses to Eriugena's interests for translating Greek texts and in this respect can be paralleled to major texts like the translation of Maximus the Confessor and of Dionysius the Areopagite. Moreover, large portions of the text were paraphrased or directly employed in the Periphyseon and, later on, were used by William of St Thierry in his De natura corporis et animae.

New edition and first ever translation of John of Garland's account of his times.
This is the first translation in any language of John of Garland's poem about the historical events of his lifetime (c. 1195- c. 1258), together with revised Latin text, introduction and notes. This work gives a vivid picture of Anglo-French relations, of studies in Toulouse after the Albigensian Crusade, and of the need for faith following Louis' catastrophic defeat in the Seventh Crusade. John gives us insights into his own life, and a stream of stories, holy and profane. The translation and notes bring to life for a wide range of medievalists this eye-witness account by an Englishman in France of major events of the age, especially 1242-52. They make clear John's debts to classical authors and to contemporaries, especially Alan of Lille and Matthew Paris. Through re-ordering the lines, this edition now generates clarity from the single manuscript. It also offers fresh insights and a new perspective on John of Garland himself.
