Occitan Translations of John XII & XIII-XVII from a Fourteenth-Century Franciscan Codex (Assisi, Chiesa Nuova MS. 9)
M. Roy Harris (au). Manuscript 9 of the Biblioteca Storico-Francescana of the Chiesa Nuova in Assisi is an anthology of Franciscan writings in the Occitan language. Since the appearance in 1955 of Ingrid Arthurís ed. of the Occitan version of Bonaventureís bio. of St. Francis, scholars have devoted increasing attention to MS. 9. However, studies of Occitan biblical translations have not dealt with the translations of John XII-XVII found in that manuscript. This work provides an ed. of these passages accomp. by a study of their Vulgate origin among the Spiritual Franciscans. Because of the widespread & growing interest in the manuscript as a whole, this vol. offers a general historical treatment of the religious milieu which spawned the translations & the collection containing them.
