To date, historians of women’s edu­cation as well as classical education in South Africa have erroneously credited her with a doctoral degree from Cornell University. This article supplements lesser-known aspects of Buchanan’s biography, and in doing so, sheds light on her experiences in South Africa during the Second South African War of Independence (1899–1902).</em></p> Jeffrey Murray Copyright (c) https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/article/view/71 Sat, 05 Feb 2022 00:00:00 +0000 'De epigrammatis Emeritensibus et Salmanticensibus cum Legionensi uno ex codicibus manuscriptis' https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/article/view/72 <p><em>La revisión de la tradición manuscrita para la epigrafía de Mérida, Salamanca y León -y singularmente el uso de los mss.

L’analisi del documento consente di rilevare l’importante contributo di Borghesi a tale campo di studi, nonché il debito metodologico di Labus nei confronti delle ricerche prosopografiche di Borghesi. Questi può ormai essere considerato a buon diritto il primo studioso che impostò su basi scientifiche la serie dei </em>praefecti Aegypti<em>.</em></p> <p><em>This paper presents the first edition of the draft of a letter from Bartolomeo Borghesi (1781–1860) to Giovanni Labus (1775–1853) concerning the study of 25 prefects of Roman Egypt. By analysing this document, it is possible to appreciate the important contribution provided by Borghesi to this research field, as well as Labus’ methodological debt towards the prosopographical investigations carried out by Borghesi. The latter can now rightly be considered the first scholar who drew up the series of the </em>praefecti Aegypti<em> on a scientific basis.</em></p> Alfredo Sansone Copyright (c) https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/article/view/75 Tue, 03 May 2022 00:00:00 +0000 I marginalia dell’incunabolo marciano 507 della Miscellaneorum centuria prima di Angelo Poliziano https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/article/view/76 <p><em>Quando Angelo Poliziano consegnò alle stampe la sua </em>Miscellaneorum centuria prima<em> (1489), era ben consapevole che si trattava di un’edizione ‘incompleta’, contenente numerosi errori di stampa e omissioni nei testi greci. Negli anni successivi il Poliziano stesso corresse e modificò il testo a margine di alcune copie del libro; anche dopo la sua morte amici e allievi seguirono l’esempio del loro mentore e continuarono ad annotare l’</em>editio princeps<em>, pur avendo a disposizione l’edizione di Aldo Manuzio (1498), che fornisce un testo ‘migliore’, redatto secondo le indicazioni dello stesso Poliziano. Scopo del presente contributo è esaminare e fornire l’edizione dei </em>marginalia<em> che tre mani, nel corso dei primi tre decenni del Cinquecento, scrissero ai margini dell’esemplare dell’incunabolo oggi conservato presso la Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana di Venezia con segnatura Inc. 507.</em></p> <p><em>When Angelo Poliziano published his </em>Miscellaneorum centuria prima<em> (1489), he was aware that it was an imperfect edition, and that the Greek texts contained numerous typos and omissions. Over the years, Poliziano himself corrected and amended it on the margins of some copies; after his death, his friends and pupils continued that revision work, and went on annotating the </em>editio princeps<em>, even though they had access to Manutius’ edition (1498), which offered a ‘better’ text and implemented the instructions of Poliziano himself. The purpose of this paper is to analyse and edit the </em>marginalia<em> which three hands, over the first three decades of the 16<sup>th</sup> century, wrote on the margins of the copy now preserved at the Marciana Library in Venice (shelf mark Inc. 507).</em></p> Alberto Longhi Copyright (c) https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/article/view/76 Tue, 14 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Per la storia di un “rompicapo”: a proposito della terza regola del Lachmann. Un carteggio inedito tra Sebastiano Timpanaro ed Enzo Cecchini https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/article/view/77 <p><em>Nel suo </em>La genesi del metodo del Lachmann<em>, Sebastiano Timpanaro si sforzò di dimostrare come la terza regola del Lachmann risultasse controversa e non potesse essere pienamente applicata, se non attraverso l’impiego di consistenti correzioni. Tra i filologi che cercarono di emendarne il testo, Enzo Cecchini propose alcune modifiche, ritenendole meno invasive delle soluzioni fornite da altri (Bornmann, Grassi e La Penna): benché Timpanaro non fosse convinto dell’emendazione, la menzionò nella ristampa della seconda edizione del suo lavoro, comprensiva di </em>addenda<em>. Questo contributo comprende una trascri­zione commentata della corrispondenza tra Cecchini e Timpanaro, in cui i due studiosi ebbero modo di chiarire i rispettivi punti di vista sulla questione.</em></p> <p><em>In his </em>The Genesis of Lachmann’s Method<em>, Sebastiano Timpanaro tried to demonstrate that Lachmann’s third rule could not be fully applied unless substantially revised. Among the philologists who attempted to amend its text, Enzo Cecchini proposed few corrections, consider­ing them to be less invasive than the solutions offered by others (Bornmann, Grassi and La Penna): although Timpanaro was not convinced of this emendation, he mentioned it in the reprint of the second edition of his work, which included some addenda. This paper includes a transcription of the epistolary correspondence between Cecchini and Timpanaro, in which the two scholars discussed their own points of view about this problem.</em></p> Alessandro Fabi Copyright (c) https://www.hcsjournal.org/ojs/index.php/hcs/article/view/77 Mon, 08 Aug 2022 00:00:00 +0000
