On the Translation

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents a partial translation of John of Scythopolis' Scholia focusing on the commentaries he made in defence of the Dionysian corpus. This translation includes comments relevant to his defence of the corpus, or about two-thirds of his commentary. The omission of several materials was based on three principles. The translation avoided scholia of a strictly philological nature, excluded scholia that do not offer much by way of a substantive content, and avoided the inclusion of repetitive materials.

Keywords: John of Scythopolis; Scholia; Dionysian corpus; philology; translation
