PAUCA DE BARBARISMO COLLECTA DE MULTIS: SOME OBSERVATIONS ON A CAROLINGIAN GRAMMATICAL TREATISE

Tommaso Mari

Resumo


This article is a follow-up on the recent editio princeps of the Pauca de barbarismo collecta de multis, a Carolingian grammar on the traditional topic of the uitia et uirtutes orationis. Here are some observations on questions that have remained open and sugges-tions for further research. As for the authorship of the treatise, here it is suggested that the most likely author is Clemens Scottus, master of the palace school in the early ninth century. It is still doubtful whether Clemens also wrote one of two extant grammars on the parts of speech. The second question concerns the position of a Bamberg manuscript within the tradition of this treatise. It is cautiously suggested that the branch in which this manuscript belongs is the product of a revision. The third question concerns the relationship between the Pauca de barbarismo and some ninth-century commentaries on Aelius Donatus’ Ars maior. Our treatise is earlier but more research is needed to clarify its position within this group of analogous texts.
