Chapter Summary

This front matter section on this book on Transformations of the Classics via Early Modern Commentaries contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, notes on the editor and the contributors, and a list of illustrations. Commentaries played an important role in the transmission of the classical heritage. Early modern intellectuals rarely read classical authors in a simple and "direct" form, but generally via intermediary paratexts, especially all kinds of commentaries.
