This session considers a set of remarkable examples of entanglement of textual layers within the tradition of patristic sermons. Zachary Guiliano shows how the creation of volumina noua of homiliaries in the monastery of St Gall was an extraordinary exercise of carolingian-era editing. Elisa Furlan explores the case of the Carolingian Bavarian Homiliary and the traces of its presence in late medieval collections produced in Padua, northern Italy.
