Translatio studii: The CTC comes to PIMS

Publications, Resources

The Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum has found a new home at PIMS, with our distinguished librarian Greti Dinkova-Bruun as editor in chief. The tenth volume of this prestigious series, edited with the assistance of James Hankins and Robert A. Kaster, has just been published; the next volume is due in 2016.

For scholars interested in the history of the classical tradition, the foundational scholarship of the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum is a vital research tool. Each article treats a separate classical author, beginning with a detailed essay on the author’s reception from antiquity to A.D. 1600. This ‘Fortuna’ is followed by a comprehensive list both of manuscript and printed commentaries on each Latin author and, in the case of Greek authors, a list of Latin translations as well. The series was founded in 1946 by Paul Oskar Kristeller and currently boasts an international team of contributors from fourteen countries in Europe and North America.
