Edition info
Contains also papers in German, French and Italian.


Part of the chapters deal with the vocabulary and methodology of translators. Others focus on the origins of the tradition or on the reception of some translations. Others address the issue of fixing the source text for a given translation. All of them deal with the tradition or influence of Greek philosophy and science on Latin medieval translations.
