17.00 Patrizia Lendinara (Università di Palermo)
Glossing Abbo in Latin and in the Vernacular


Glossing was a scribal practice in use since antiquity, but it was in the
Middle Ages that it acquired a wider meaning and a different role,
becoming one of the most widespread forms of literacy in the Germanic
West, including the British Isles.
This project focuses on a well-identified time-span, i.e. the late
Anglo-Saxon period, and on glossarial material which can be traced back to
leading cultural centres such as Abingdon, Canterbury, Glastonbury, and
The research programme, funded by the Ministry of University and the three
universities of Palermo, Rome LUMSA, and Udine, and directed by Patrizia
Lendinara, aims to recontextualize glosses in order to ascertain the
different steps of the interpretation process from which the glossators’
work stemmed.
Glosses and glossaries will thus be studied from a much wider point of
view, addressing the issue of why a text was glossed at a given? time and
in a given scriptorium. The relationship between the glosses and the Latin
text they accompany (as well as that between lemma and interpretamentum
within a glossary) will be analysed with the intent of tracing the glosses
back to their original context, moving from the data offered by the late
Anglo-Saxon and early Anglo-Norman manuscripts.
