Medieval Latin philology seminar by Patrick Meusel

The Centre for Medieval Studies is pleased to present a Medieval Latin Philology Seminar

Patrick Meusel

The commentary of (Ps.) Remigius of Auxerre on Sedulius' Carmen Paschale

Sedulius' Carmen Paschale (*c*. 425-450) was among the more popular poems of the early Middle Ages, surviving in some sixty manuscript copies from the ninth through eleventh centuries alone, and commented upon by a number of Carolingians, including (perhaps) Remigius of Auxerre (*c*. 841-908).

In a series of three seminars, I will present work in progress towards the first complete critical edition of the commentary attributed to Remigius. With the first seminar, I will set out the size and scope of my project, introducing the *Carmen* and commentary. The second and third seminars will be devoted to the description of manuscripts and discussion of the commentary. I will be concerned throughout with questions of authorship, the establishment of a *stemma codicum*, and the identification of sources.

This event is free and open to all.  A background reading is available upon request from the Centre for Medieval Studies (416) 978-4884.
