Virgil's Aeneid XI is an important, yet sometimes overlooked, book which covers the funerals following the fierce fighting in Book X and a council of the Latins before they and the Trojans resume battle after the end of the truce. This edition contains a thorough Introduction which provides context for Book XI both within and beyond the rest of the poem, explores key characters such as Aeneas and Camilla, and deals with issues of metre and textual transmission. The line-by-line Commentary will be indispensable for students and instructors wishing to enhance their understanding of the poem and especially of Virgil's language and syntax. Accessible and comprehensive, the volume will help readers to appreciate features of Virgilian style as well as deepening their engagement with the content and themes of the Aeneid as a whole.

The volume studies the manifestations of a centuries-long linguistic tradition that did not vanish at the dawn of modernity. It brings together contributions about various countries of Western and Central Europe.
Le XIXe siècle est connu comme l'époque où l'essor des nationalismes et des langues nationales en Europe a définitivement relégué le latin aux marges du monde social. Or, si le latin connaît alors un indéniable déclin, il n'en demeure pas moins tout un temps une langue importante pour les nations modernes.
Le présent volume étudie les manifestations d'une tradition linguistique pluriséculaire qui ne s'est pas éteinte à l'aube de la modernité. Fruit d'une collaboration internationale, il rassemble des contributions portant sur différents pays d'Europe occidentale et centrale. Les auteurs retracent l'histoire du latin au XIXe siècle, s'interrogent aussi bien sur les raisons de son succès que sur celles de son déclin et prêtent une attention particulière aux aspects thématiques et stylistiques des textes. La littérature néo-latine, qui n'est pas indifférente au surgissement des romantismes européens, est passée à la loupe. L'ouvrage met également en évidence l'inflexion que l'inspiration latine antique a pu donner à une œuvre poétique en langue moderne.

Après une évolution considérable depuis les invectives de Catulle au 1er siècle avant notre ère, l'épigramme satirique prend sa forme canonique avec Martial au 1er siècle de notre ère, en acquérant une structure binaire orientée vers la pointe et en choisissant de dénoncer des types de personnages plutôt que des individus réels. Pour remettre en valeur l'épigramme satirique martialienne, souvent oubliée par la critique contemporaine, le présent volume réunit 13 contributions qui proposent des études nouvelles sur la stylistique de ce type d'épigramme, ainsi que sur sa dimension thématique et intertextuelle.

Apulée, Opera Philosophica, éd. Giuseppina Magnaldi, Oxford, 2020.

This new critical edition aims to provide a new standard text of Apuleius' De Deo Socratis, De Platone et eius dogmate, and De mundo, allowing readers to get closer than ever before to the philosophical writings of the renowned orator, extraordinary prose stylist, and Platonist philosopher. Knowledge of these three works is crucial to understanding the reinterpretation and transmission of Greek philosophical thought in the Latin world: based on a new collation of the ancient manuscripts and scrupulous investigation of all previous editions, the Latin text presented here relies on a safer ms. basis than its predecessors. The enforcement of the criterion of the so-called 'signal-word' in particular has enabled improved solutions for many textual problems to be found, some older emendations to be confirmed, and previously unnoticed corruptions to be located and cogently healed, while the rich and detailed apparatus criticus selectively focuses on only plausible conjectures in doubtful passages. A fluent Latin praefatio offers a neat explanation of the principles which have been adopted throughout the edition, while also ably balancing comprehensive coverage of the main manuscript sources, their histories, and their relationships with lucidity and concision, despite the intricacy of the textual tradition.

Francesco Filelfo, Corrispondenza. I. Lettere volgari. Edizione critica e commento a cura di Nicoletta Marcelli. Coordinamento scientifico di Silvia Fiaschi, Florence, 2019.

Nel panorama dell'umanesimo italiano a fianco di numerosi e celebri autori che, sull'esempio di Francesco Petrarca, si dedicarono alla composizione di un epistolario latino, possiamo annoverarne altrettanti per ciò che concerne l'epistolografia in volgare, ma, assai rari sono i casi di umanisti che per la scrittura di lettere si siano cimentati sul doppio registro latino-volgare e, nel caso di Filelfo, con l'aggiunta del greco. Se all'Epistolario latino e greco, raccolto, rielaborato e concepito con le caratteristiche di una vera e propria opera letteraria destinata alla pubblicazione Filelfo dedicò notevoli cure per molti anni, alle lettere volgari, al contrario, l'autore non riconobbe uno statuto letterario, per cui la loro sorte è stata quella della totale dispersione, al punto che non se ne conosceva neppure il numero complessivo. Grazie a questo lavoro il corpus conta oggi 141 lettere, parte delle quali sconosciute e inedite, in larga misura autografe, indirizzate ad alcune tra le maggiori personalità della politica e della cultura del Quattrocento: fra tutti spiccano i duchi Francesco e Galeazzo Maria Sforza, Lorenzo il Magnifico e il cancelliere sforzesco Cicco Simonetta. Le lettere filelfiane che qui si pubblicano toccano molti aspetti della storia e della cultura del secolo XV, dalla politica, alla diplomazia, dalle humanae litterae, alla biografia di Filelfo stesso, per cui nella loro varietà rispecchiano a pieno la poliedrica personalità dell'autore: di ognuno di questi aspetti il volume ha cercato di dare conto con il commento ai testi, che si auspica possa costituire un utile strumento per nuove acquisizioni nell'ambito degli studi storico-letterari.

Following the studies of Pierre Hadot, we know that the main approach to philosophy in Late Antiquity takes the form of an exegesis of authoritative texts, not without altering their primary aim. As soon as the texts come to be perceived as the products of a divine revelation, the hermeneutics applied to them are indistinguishable from a theology. Reading and commenting on the revelatory texts imply an almost religious adherence to their doctrinal content, which is close to being understood as articles of belief. These two complementary aspects were accentuated in a complex relationship of rivalry with Christianity.
The gradual transition from a philosophical to a religious conception of the world in Late Antiquity, from the first to the sixth century, has not been sufficiently analysed. This book aims to help fill this gap. It brings together the perspectives of various specialists – historians of ancient philosophy, religions in the Graeco-Roman world, and patristics – around three specific themes: the place of theological revelations within the philosophical discourse in Late Antiquity, the exegetical approach as a source of philosophical and theological dogmas, and the role of polemics in the establishment of a new relationship between beliefs and philosophy.
