Chapter Summary

Of all the sample chapters being considered, Book 15:22 presents the clearest indication of a division in the manuscript tradition. It highlights, in particular, the split between the β group and the rest by various additional readings that it alone contains. The analysis of this chapter employs F02 and F38 as its base, the manuscripts closest to the Latin text. The sections of Eracles text placed within square brackets represent additional material found only in the β manuscripts. The instances in which the β manuscripts consistently alter the wording of the text are highlighted, while the variant appears in a footnote. The chapter is of particular importance because it is one of the few places where the French provides information not found in the Latin text, i.e., the names of the doctors who treated the emperor.

Keywords: β manuscripts; Eracles text; French; Latin text
