Book Information


Title: Planctus Magistrae Doloris
Subtitle: Volgarizzamento in antico veronese
Edited By: Paolo Pellegrini
Series Title: De Gruyter Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 379

This is a new critical and commented edition of the Planctus Magistrae Doloris, a vernacular old Veronese prose version of a Planctus Mariae that was copied in the second half of the 14th century. While a first transcription was published in 1891 by Gustav Oehlert, the current editor has succeeded in identifying the Latin version the vernacular text was drawn from, allowing him to clarify some difficult passages. Moreover, the author has established a stemma codicum of the three manuscripts that transmit the Latin text, illuminating the branch of the tradition on which the vernacular depends. This edition also contains a detailed linguistic commentary and glossary.
