Medieval and Early Modern Greek Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Emmanuel College MS 32 is a <i>Miscellany</i> composed of 12 parts, some of which recur in <a target='_blank' class='externalLink' href='https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-EMMANUEL-00033/1'> Emmanuel College MS 33</a>.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>The first part consists of two damaged quires placed in inverted order. The manuscript from which they came contained, or should have contained, the <i>Idylls</i> of Theocritus of Syracuse, and the margins are ruled to receive the scholia. Part I was copied by Andreas Donos (died before 1560), who also copied Part IV. The latter contain some lines of Theogony (ll. 520-1022) and the Scutum Herculis (ll. 1-238, 400-480) by Hesiod, but the order is disturbed.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Part III consists of four quires from a manuscript of the <i>Alexandra</i> of Lycophoron with scholia by Isaac Tzetzes. The order is disturbed and a fifth quire is now in Emmanuel MS 33, Part II (ff. 95r-[102]). The quire signatures in this part of Emmanuel MS 32 have been trimmed and only two traces remain, but a Greek signature survives in Emmanuel MS 33 (ϛʹ, on ff. 95r and [102]v). From this and the lines of text, it is possible to reconstruct the following quire order: <div>αʹ = Emmanuel MS 32 quire 7 (+ f. 70)<br />βʹ = quire 8<br />γʹ = quire 10<br />δʹ = missing<br />εʹ = Emmanuel MS 32 quire 9<br />ϛʹ = Emmanuel MS 33, Part II.<br /></div><br /></p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Part VI contains some <i>carmina</i> of Gregory of Nazianzus from a larger selction known as Gedichtgruppe I. The <i>Carmina de se ipso</i> are copied along with the Paraphase A in two columns. The original order of quires was: <div>18: ff. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(277);return false;'>136r-[142]v</a>, <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(275);return false;'>135r-135v</a><br />20: ff. <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(307);return false;'>[151]r-[158]v</a><br />19: <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(291);return false;'>ff. 143r-[150]v.</a><br /></div><br /></p><p style='text-align: justify;'> Dr Matteo Di Franco</p>
