Abstract

This pick-up session, offered by three members of the editorial team of the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library is designed to be interactive. To ‘get the juices flowing’, we will begin with short presentations on topics related to the translation of Medieval Latin texts. Two of these presentations will be dedicated to problems related to specific authors and genres, namely Desiderius of Cahors’ Letters and Bede’s Historia Ecclesiastica. Jan Ziolkowski will also present on: ‘The Verse for the Where?: Identifying Audience for Texts and Translations.’ For the most part, however, we look forward to discussing your questions and issues. If you would like to discuss a specific text, please bring a PowerPoint slide that can be projected for discussion.

Participants include Julia Barrow (University of Leeds), Danuta Shanzer (Universität Wien), Jan Ziolkowski (Dumbarton Oaks, Washington DC).
