Abstract

This panel concentrates on the oeuvre of Hrothsvita of Gandersheim in association with the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library’s forthcoming text and translation of her Complete Works by Robert G. Babcock. Segers studies the editorial process of München, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek CLM 14485 in relation to Terentian models. Smolak explores the chronology and quellenforschung of the Dies-irae verses’ in her Verslegende Theophilus and studys the Dulcitius in relation to 1. a Schwank from the Gesta Romanorum and 2. a Salzburg Benedictine drama. Bauer compares the plots of Gallicanus and three other plays to their hagiographical sources to delineate and explain features previously seen as flaws.
