Sedulius' Carmen Paschale (c. 425-450) was among the more popular poems of the early Middle Ages, surviving in some sixty manuscript copies from the ninth through eleventh centuries alone, and commented upon by a number of Carolingians, including (perhaps) Remigius of Auxerre (c. 841-908).
In a series of three seminars, I will present work in progress towards the first complete critical edition of the commentary attributed to Remigius.
With the first seminar, I will set out the size and scope of my project, introducing the Carmen and commentary. The second and third seminars will be devoted to the description of manuscripts and discussion of the commentary. I will be concerned throughout with questions of authorship, the establishment of a stemma codicum, and the identification of sources.
