Exzerpte als Rezeptionszeugnisse: Isidors Etymologiae in Handschriften aus dem Kloster St. Emmeram


Cardelle de Hartmann, Carmen (2009). Exzerpte als Rezeptionszeugnisse: Isidors Etymologiae in Handschriften aus dem Kloster St. Emmeram. Das Mittelalter, 14(2):29-41.

Abstract

The Etymologiae by Isidore of Sevilla are one of the most intensively used encyclopaedias in European history; they were consulted, copied and finally printed between the seventh and fifteenth century. So far, their reception has been studied mainly with regard to the circulation in Europe, but also their use as a source has often been commented on. Only in a few cases, however, have excerpts and fragments been examined, although they can provide important insights into the reception of the work. Because of the almost unfathomable number of such textual witnesses, the study must be focussed on a clearly defined group of users. This article discusses the reception of Isidore in the Benedictine convent of Saint Emmeram in Regensburg, whose library is today a fonds on the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek at Munich. Three particular manuscripts are presented (Clm 14515, Clm 14584 and Clm 14477) which show how useful information were extracted from the work and made readily available for the classroom.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
