Christ's College : Sophocles, Pindar, Hesiod and Aeschylus

Christ's College

<p style='text-align: justify;'> The manuscript is closely related to Cambridge, Christ's College, MS Rouse 358; both are anthologies of Greek literary texts copied by Carolus Stephanus. MS Rouse 359 contains works by <i>Sophocles, Pindar, Hesiod and Aeschylus</i>. The texts of the Greek poets are accompanied by numerous extracts from various encyclopaedias and commentaries from the 16th century; for example, the Greek hypotheses to Sophocles' tragedies are accompanied by Latin translations by the German humanist Thomas Naogeorgus (ca. 1511-1563), published in <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href=''>1558</a>. The <i>periocha</i> (very short summaries of the tragedies, on <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(10);return false;'>sect. 1, p. [viii]</a>) and the notes copied in the margins of the tragedies are also taken from this same translation.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Although it does not seem to have been intended to be divided into volumes, the manuscript is conceived in four sections, each with independent pagination.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
