About this Item: Fondazione CISAM Spoleto 2010, 2010. Bross., cm 24x17, pp IX-345. Ricordare Vito Fumagalli, per coloro che ne furono allievi e amici, non vuol dire abbandonarsi al gioco affettuoso e doloroso della memoria personale ma mettere a frutto il suo insegnamento che sentiamo vitale e fertile, non solo perché quotidianamente ispira il nostro lavoro di ricerca, ma perché attorno a noi ne scorgiamo di continuo le tracce, negli interessi e nelle prospettive anche di colleghi che non hanno avuto la fortuna di frequentarlo assiduamente e neppure, se più giovani, conoscerlo di persona. Nel 2007, accingendoci a organizzare un colloquio per ricordare i dieci anni dalla scomparsa del maestro, noi suoi allievi bolognesi non abbiamo dunque insistito sulle corde soggettive e individuali della ricorrenza, ma abbiamo piuttosto cercato di impostare una riflessione complessiva sull’opera di Vito Fumagalli e su quanto essa abbia pesato nell’orientare (anche in senso critico) il successivo dibattito storiografico. Studiosi italiani e stranieri, di varia formazione e di generazioni diverse, sono stati invitati a fare il punto su temi che a Fumagalli stavano a cuore e che tuttora conservano un posto di rilievo tra gli interessi della comunità scientifica, che in tal modo, direttamente o indirettamente, mantiene o istituisce con lui un fervido rapporto intellettuale. I temi che abbiamo individuato sono quattro, fra loro diversi ma strettamente integrati, e ci è parso suggestivo evocarli facendo ricorso a espressioni tratte dalla bibliografia fumagalliana. Terra e società (titolo di un fortunato volume pubblicato nel 1974 e poi nel 1976) è quasi un’endiadi, a significare la profonda dimensione ‘territoriale’ della prospettiva storiografica di Fumagalli: egli non intese mai gli uomini, individualmente e collettivamente intesi, se non nel rapporto fondante e determinante con i luoghi in cui vissero, con la terra che calpestarono e della quale si alimentarono, fisicamente e spiritualmente. La storia agraria quindi, di cui Fumagalli fu maestro e, in Italia, iniziatore, non è aspetto minore o particolare di una storia più ampia e ‘generale’, ma premessa e condizione di questa, così come la vicinanza di campi o di boschi non è aspetto occasionale del vivere, ma sostanziale e condizionante. La pietra viva (il titolo è del 1988) significa ancora l’attenzione agli aspetti materiali e fisici del vivere: la simbiosi non solo con i boschi e le campagne ma con quei luoghi straordinari dell’artificio umano che sono le città. Luoghi che segnano le continuità e le discontinuità della storia, luoghi che affascinano ma anche spaventano chi, come Fumagalli, non riusciva a nascondere la sua diffidenza per tutto ciò che spezza gli equilibri ‘naturali’ del mondo. Con Il Regno italico (un titolo del 1978) l’attenzione si sposta dalle forme ambientali e insediative a quelle istituzionali e politiche. Ma basta rileggere quel libro per accorgersi come questi temi restino strettamente legati, perché nell’ottica fumagalliana non esistono strutture di potere e di governo che non abbiano quotidianamente a confrontarsi con la dimensione fisica dei luoghi e dei paesaggi. Considerare contestualmente queste realtà è un modo per capirle meglio tutte, per allargare lo sguardo e pensare a una storia che non può non essere totale (ciò che ci sembra importante ribadire oggi, in tempi di eccessiva parcellizzazione e specializzazione delle competenze storiografiche). Atteggiamenti mentali e stili di vita (titolo di un saggio del 1988) richiama ancora l’attenzione di Fumagalli al vissuto quotidiano, stavolta con una accentuazione del dato individuale, di quella ‘ricerca della persona’ che nei suoi interessi non si limitò alla collocazione sociale degli uomini ma volle indagare più a fondo, cercando di entrare nel cervello e nel cuore delle persone. Obiettivo certo ambizioso, impossibile a giudizio di molti: ma fu questa passione per l’uomo, per l’uomo vivo, fatto di sangue e di pensieri, a rendere viva la storiografia di Vito Fumagal.

About this Item: Brepols, 2012. printed wrappers. First Edition.. large octavo, xx, 564 pp. Glossing was a scribal practice in use since antiquity, but it was in the Middle Ages that it acquired a wider meaning and a different role, becoming one of the most widespread forms of literacy in the Germanic West, including the British Isles. Most of the essays collected in this volume focus on the late Anglo-Saxon period, that is a well-identified time-frame spanning from the Benedictine Reform to the eleventh century. As recent scholarship has convincingly established, the second half of the tenth century and the beginning of the eleventh saw the blooming of Anglo-Saxon scholarship and a remarkable advance in educational practices. Within this cultural resurgence, glossing undoubtedly played no small role and was particularly vital in centres such as Abingdon, Canterbury, and Winchester. In the contributions to the present volume, the relationship between glosses and the text they accompany is always explored on the basis of their manuscript context. The essays are devoted to both Latin and Old English apparatuses of glosses as well as to specific items of the Old Norse and Old Saxon glossarial production. With 16 color illustrations. New.

Verlagsfrisch New copy Textes et Etudes du Moyen Âge (TEMA 73) Hagiography in Anglo-Saxon England: Adopting and Adapting Saints' Lives into Old English Prose (c. 950-1150) L. Lazzari, P. Lendinara, C. Di Sciacca (eds.) XVIII+589 p., 10 b/w ill. + 3 colour ill., 165 x 240 mm, 2014 ISBN: 978-2-503-55199-9 Languages: English Paperback The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 65,00 This volume gathers fourteen new essays devoted to Old English prose saints' lives from the late Anglo-Saxon period. Moving from diverse methodological approaches and building on the most recent developments in primary and secondary scholarship, the contributions comprehensively consider the texts and contexts of the vernacular hagiographic output both by Ælfric, the major hagiographer of his day, and by anonymous authors. By means of a comprehensive scrutiny of the Latin source-texts, including the often neglected Vitas Patrum, as well as of both the historical and manuscript context, this collection contributes to outline the late Anglo-Saxon sanctorale and to advance our knowledge of the literary culture and intellectual history of pre-Conquest England and beyond.

Verlagsfrisch New copy Textes et Etudes du Moyen Âge TEMA 39 Form and content of instruction in Anglo-Saxon England in the light of contemporary manuscript evidence Papers presented at the International Conference, Udine, 6-8 April 2006 P. Lendinara, L. Lazzari, M. A. D'Aronco (eds.) XIII+546 p., 2 b/w ill. + 4 colour ill., 165 x 240 mm, 2007 ISBN: 978-2-503-52591-0 Languages: English Paperback The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 65,00 The essays collected in this volume focus on a prominent aspect of Anglo-Saxon culture: educational texts and the Insular manuscripts which have preserved them. The English imported manuscripts and texts from the Continent, whilst a series of foreign masters, from Theodore of Tarsus to Abbo of Fleury, brought with them knowledge of works which were being studied in Continental schools. Although monastic education played a leading role for the entire Anglo-Saxon period, it was in the second half of the tenth and early eleventh centuries that it reached its zenith, with its renewed importance and the presence of energetic masters such as Æthelwold and Ælfric. The indebtedness to Continental programs of study is evident at each step, beginning with the Disticha Catonis. Nevertheless, a number of texts initially designed for a Latin-speaking milieu appear to have been abandoned (for instance in the field of grammar) in favour of new teaching tools. Besides texts which were part of the standard curriculum, Anglo-Saxon manuscripts provide abundant evidence of other learning and teaching instruments, in particular those for a specialized class of laymen, the Old English læce, the healer or physician. Medicine occupies a relevant place in the book production of late Anglo-Saxon England and, in this field too, knowledge from very far afield was preserved and reshaped. All these essays, many by leading scholars in the various fields, explore these issues by analysing the actual manuscripts, their layout and contents. They show how miscellaneous collections of treatises in medieval codices had an internal logic, and highlight how crucial manuscripts are to the study of medieval culture.
