Abstract

Un nuovo testimone frammentario della Vie des Peres nell’Archivio Storico Comunale di Crema

This article provides the codicological description and the edition of an unknown fragmentary witness of the Old French Vie des Peres (named Cr), which has been recently found in the Archivio Storico Comunale of Crema (CR). The contribution also contains a short linguistic analysis of Cr and identifies the Visconti-Sforza family as the possible previous owners of the original manuscript. In conclusion, the work tries to contextualize the fragment within the manuscript tradition: the study of the text of Cr reveals its higher quality, as shown by a remarkable number of lectiones difficiliores, in comparison with the manuscripts belonging to the same family in the stemma.
