At least twice in its fifteen hundred years of history the apocryphal Gospel of Nicodemus (GN) has been a victim of its own success. First, at the close of the Middle Ages, its popularity and prestige attracted the censure of church reformers striving to rid Christian religion of fancy and superstition. Then, half a millennium later, the daunting multiplicity of its medieval versions and manuscripts, extant in most European languages, discouraged comprehensive, crosslinguistic studies of its literary career in Western Europe. Although the past century has shed much light on individual vernacular strands of the apocryphon’s tradition, it has produced no broadly based overview of the GN in all its textual, literary, and linguistic forms. The only generally available survey of its Western vernacular translations, adaptations, and influence remains Richard Wülcker’s 1872 essay Das Evangelium Nicodemi in der abendländischen Literatur. Although it has served well generations of scholars, this essay is by now sadly out of date: its factual information is fragmentary, its bibliographical references are outdated and unreliable, and its treatment of various intertextual relationships rarely goes beyond the superficial. Based on second- and third-hand information, it often frustrates modern expectations of thoroughness and exactitude. That it continues to be used, however, demonstrates a clear need for a guide to the apocryphon’s textual forms, intertextual relationships, and contextual variety in Western Europe.
In response to that need, the present volume brings together a series of essays documenting and exploring the presence of the GN in Western literary traditions of the Middle Ages. The essays cover a vast territory, both thematically and linguistically, for networks of the apocryphon’s translations, adaptations, thematic borrowings, and allusions extended to most Romance, Germanic, and Celtic vernaculars. Accordingly, the medieval languages surveyed here include Latin, French, Catalan, Occitan, and Italian; English, High German, Dutch, Low German, and Norse; and Irish, Welsh, and Cornish.
The polyglot nature and vast scope of this undertaking have dictated its collaborative format. The essays collected here, all but two commissioned for this volume, have been written by scholars specializing in different linguistic and literary traditions. Some have been actively involved in the editing of medieval recensions of the apocryphon, others have pursued textual or critical issues arising from it, still others have been attracted to it through the study of works it inspired or influenced. This diversity of scholarly backgrounds and critical interests of the contributors accounts for the diversity of theoretical perspectives on and practical approaches to the apocryphon in the present volume. However, the substance and character of each essay are determined not solely by the author’s critical ideology but also, and perhaps more fundamentally, by the extent of the GN‘s presence in a particular linguistic tradition and the current state of scholarship on it.

Sedgefield. King Alfred's Old English version of Boethius De consolatione philosophiae. 1899. by Patrologia Latina, Graeca et Orientalis

Quote. Henry Chadwick. Boetius. 1981.

The preface to Boethius’ Institutio arithmetica implies an intention to write introductions to all four mathematical disciplines. Declarations of intent are not always fulfilled. At one time Augustine intended to write treatises on all seven liberal arts, but he completed only his projects on grammar, rhetoric, dialectic, something on geometry, and the six well­ known books on music. His Grammar was already lost from his own library at Hippo before he came to write his Retractations (i, 6) near the end of his life. A comparable misfortune seems early to have struck Boethius’ writings on geometry and, especially, astronomy.
Nothing by Boethius on astronomy has been transmitted by the medieval manuscript tradition, nor is any such work mentioned by Cassiodorus in his Institutiones. In the tenth century Gerbert of Aurillac, to be Pope Sylvester II from 999 to his death in 1003, speaks of Boethius as author of eight books on astronomy (astrologia) which he had seen in a manuscript at Bobbio. But the work (if really that by Boethius) failed to find copyists. Students preferred to find their astronomy in Macrobius’ commentary on Cicero’s Dream of Scipio or from Martianus Capella or from Cassiodorus. However, one likely model for Boethius’ treatise is the summary of Ptolemy’s Mathematike Syntaxis (the `Almagest’) composed by Proclus, a work which is still extant, though not edited since L. Allatius’ edition (Leyden, 1635). If Boethius’ work followed this precedent, he will have taken the earth as the static centre of a spherical cosmos, the Ptolemaic system assumed in his commentary on the Categories (212BC), and will have explained how the heavenly bodies move in relation to it; the solar year and its relation to the lunar months; the design and use of the astrolabe (an instrument in whose use Ammonius’ high skill is reported by Simplicius, In de Caelo, p. 462, 20); eclipses, fixed stars, the precession of the equinoxes; finally the courses of the planets. How far he comprehended Ptolemy’s trigonometry we cannot guess, and it is idle to speculate further. The allusion to Ptolemy’s astronomical geography in the Consolation of Philosophy (ii, 7, 4) as a work specially studied by Boethius is no doubt to be interpreted as an allusion to Boethius’ treatise on the subject.

El año 2012 ha sido decisivo, y todo un reto a sortear por la comunidad PLGO. Hemos sufrido ataques, amenazas, como pocas veces antes se incrementó el spam, y todo ello ocasionó un fuerte deterioro tanto en los proyectos como en la vida misma de la comunidad PLGO en sus diferentes áreas.

Nos abruma principalmente la incertidumbre de sabernos en manos caprichosas, precisamente las de quienes nos proveen de hosting, quienes han dejado muy en claro su intención de ‘mantenernos en la mira’, y pendientes de cualquier ‘falta’ que contravenga sus intereses: el dinero.

Quieren, a como dé lugar, que paguemos más, que rentemos y solicitemos el uso de un servidor dedicado. Lo cual queda fuera de nuestras posibilidades, y no entra en nuestros planes ni siquiera como una opción a mediano o largo plazo. Por tanto, habremos de seguir trabajando con lo que tenemos a la mano, haciendo nuestra labor lo mejor que podemos, y sobre todo, sabiendo que cualquier empresa dejada en las manos de los hombres tarde que temprano llegará a su fin. Si algo bueno hay en todo esto que pueda ayudar a quienes requieren algún tipo de información, esperamos que sea un mérito, el mínimo entre todos, cuando el Padre nos llame a dar cuentas al final de nuestros días sobre este mundo.

Así, pues, tomamos este hecho quizá intrascendente, como un aliciente para seguir adelante, y no desfallecer aunque el horizonte no parezca despoblado de nubarrones y relámpagos y centellas.

Felicidades a todos y cada uno de los miembros que conforman la comunidad PLGO, y sobre todo, a los visitantes quienes hacen posible que proyectos como el de la biblioteca en línea a través de Scribd, sean mucho más que un mero conglomerado de e-books: un proyecto útil que sirve de la mejor manera posible a la comunidad en general.
