Five complete manuscripts of Lucan, a Roman poet born in Spain in A.D. 39, exist from the ninth century. Because the manuscripts are, on the surface, closely related, a majority of them have been largely ignored. Harold Gotoff’s monograph assesses the relationships apparent among these works, discussing the editorial history of Lucan and showing in great detail how the text of this important classical author was propagated during the Carolingian Renaissance. Medievalists will take particular interest in the pattern Gotoff finds in the practices and behavior of scribes and correctors in the Carolingian period.
