Western Medieval Manuscripts : Callimachus

Western Medieval Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript contains epigrams and brief fragments from the works of the ancient poet <i>Callimachus</i> with annotations on many of his works by Thomas Stanley (1625-1678), along with some notes regarding the content of the Chaldaian Oracles. Stanley was a poet, historian of philosophy and editor and translator of classical Greek texts. He left such annotations on a number of classical authors, but appears to have paid particular attention to Callimachus. The eminent classicist Richard Bentley (1662-1742) was accused in an anonymous pamphlet of using Stanley's notes without attribution (<i>A Short Account of Dr. Bentley's Humanity and Justice to those Authors who have written before him, with an honest Vindication of Thomas Stanley, Esq., and his Notes on Callimachos</i> (London 1699)).</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Christopher Wright</p>
