This volume contains the expanded papers of the second workshop of the European Science Foundation Network on the "Classical Tradition in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance", devoted to classical scholarship in the Middle Ages and the Early Renaissance. It focuses on commentaries on Horace, Lucan, Statius and Terence, Byzantine grammatical commentaries, accessus ad auctores, Old High German glosses, and pseudo-antique literature. A comprehensive bibliography, containing some thousand items, makes this an essential tool for anyone concerned with the diverse aspects of mediaeval and renaissance scholarship, in particular in relation to classical Greek and Latin texts, textual criticism, commentaries and glosses, and questions of attribution.
