Chapter Summary

Both editions of the Eracles contain instances in which their readings do not match those in the manuscripts closest to the original translation. The most significant of these differences provides the criteria for choosing sample chapters to establish a manuscript stemma. These variants include the addition of new material. Both editions contain numerous instances in which the French text departs from the Latin despite the fact that several manuscripts contain readings that follow the Latin more closely. Both editions contain rubrics for all chapters. Paris's edition contains fewer divergences from the Latin than does the RHC edition, indicating that the manuscripts he was using contain readings closer to the original translation. However, his edition contains errors and further instances in which he deviated from his base manuscript and introduced readings from the RHC not found in his manuscript.
