Abstract:

The Biblioteca Universitaria de Salamanca has the third most important collection of Greek manuscripts in Spain, after that of the Biblioteca del Monasterio de El Escorial and the Biblioteca Nacional. Nevertheless, the lack of a systematic and modern catalog of these manuscripts, and of a description of the collection as a whole, has resulted in general ignorance about these codices. This book intends to provide some of this missing information by giving a detailed history of the 91 Greek manuscripts preserved at Salamanca. It studies the way in which the collection was formed, the role in its creation that was played by several important Spanish Hellenists, and the history of the manuscripts before their arrival at Salamanca. The tools of philology, paleography, codicology, and textual criticism were used to place each of the codices in its historical and cultural framework, whether of medieval Byzantium, Renaissance Italy, or Habsburg Spain. The history of this manuscript collection allows us to reevaluate the collection from a contemporary perspective, and to assess the role that Greek manuscripts have played for the Universitaria de Salamanca in developing its academic activity and its diffusion of ideas over the past 800 years.
