• Basile Markesinis.
Les débuts du monoénergisme. Rectifications concernant ce qui s’est passé entre Cyrus d’Alexandrie, Serge de Constantinople et S. Sophrone de Jérusalem

The article shows that St Sophronius met Cyrus of Antioch after the Union (3 June 633) between the Chalcedonians and the Theodosians had been signed.  The letter of Cyrus which Sophronius brought to Sergius of Constantinople after the failure of his meeting with Cyrus cannot be identified as the Ep. ad Sergium CP (CPG 7611) as Grumel and Winkelmann considered: it was another letter, the existence of which had already been postulated by Hefele, a short extract of which is preserved in the Acts of the Lateran Council of 649.  Neither can the letter forbidding all discussion of one or two operations in the two natures of Christ, which Sergius sent to Cyrus after his meeting with Sophronius, be identified as the Ep. ad Cyrum Alex. (CPG 7605).

Thome Celanensis Vita beati patris nostri Fran­cisci (Vita brevior).  Présentation et édition critique

The National Library of France has just acquired a manuscript which has been registered as NAL 3245.  Copied in the 1230’s, probably in a friary of the OFM near Assisi for one of the brothers, this very small volume is one of the earliest manuscripts of Franciscan origin.  Together with many other texts it con­tains a Vita beati patris nostri Francisci compiled by Thomas of Celano on the in­structions of the Minister General Brother Elias (1232-1239).  It is an abridged and updated version of the Vita prima by the same author and this Vita brevior must be the second Vita ever written about il Poverello.  Until now only some excerpts edited in 2007 under the title Légende ombrienne were known.  This is the first critical edition of the Vita brevior.  It has been almost a century since such a discovery in the field of Franciscan studies has been made.

The Magnum Legendarium Austriacum: A New Investigation of One of Medieval Europe’s Richest Hagio­gra­phical Collections

Cet article présente les premiers résultats d’une recherche de longue haleine sur l’une des plus vastes collections hagiographiques compilées dans l’Europe médiévale, à savoir le Magnum Legendarium Austriacum, transmis par six exemplaires.  Première étude substantielle sur ce légendier depuis celle d’Albert Poncelet à la fin du xixe siècle, l’article vise à actualiser l’état de la recherche et à insuffler un nouvel élan à celle-ci.  Proposant un nouveau stemma codicum, l’A. formule de nouvelles perspectives sur la provenance, le mode de compilation, la réception et le contexte social de cette exceptionnelle collection de la fin du xiie s.

Articles

• Xavier Lequeux.
La Passion grecque abrégée de sainte Cyprille martyre à Cyrène en Libye (BHG 2093)

The new text edited on the basis of Mss Andros, Monastery τῆς Ζωοδόχου Πηγῆς 65 (15th cent., f. 195-198v) and Vaticanus graecus 2014 (12th cent., f. 111-113) relates the history of a woman of Cyrene who was one of the entourage of Bishop Theodore at the time of Diocletian. After the martyrdom of the bishop the pagans tried to force the beautiful Cyprilla to sacrifice to the idols. She avoided this by placing her hand on the burning-hot altar. Suspended from a pole she was flayed alive and died. Milk seeped from her breasts and was mixed with the blood dripping from her wounds to the point that they soaked through the shroud enveloping her mortal remains. The martyr was buried in a grotto and a cross was carved on the rock in the hollow of which the sick drew dew with curative properties. Cyprilla is venerated at Byzantium either on 4 July or the following day.

The Right Hand Fetid, the Left Unclean. An Unknown Byzantine Spiritually Beneficial Tale

Le texte original grec de cette historiette vit le jour dans un milieu chrétien à Antioche sous la domination arabe, alors que le souvenir du patriarche Théodoret (VIIIe s.) était encore vivace. L'intrigue, byzantine dans ses grandes lignes, reflète aussi l'influence de la tradition musulmane, péjorative à l'égard de la main gauche.

Al diavolo la tassa ! Un episodio interpolato della Vita S. Aedwardi regis et confessoris di Aelredo di Rievaulx

Only part of the manuscript tradition of Aelred of Rievaulx's Vita sancti Aedwardi regis et confessoris contains an episode concerning the abolition of a tax known as danegeld. According to the account Edward reintroduced this tax, once paid to prevent Danish invasions, only at the suggestion of his counsellors and then decided to abolish it definitively after seeing the devil in the shape of a monkey on the pile of money collected. In this paper the story is analyzed in order to demonstrate that it is an episode interpolated into the Vita before the end of the 12th century. The study is followed by a critical edition of the Latin text.

Hagiographie et prédication: le légendier Charleville-Mézières, BM 177

The Latin ms Charleville-Mézières BM 177 is an abridged legendary of Metz which originates from Saint-Arnoul, where it was copied in about 1300. It was designed to serve as a manual for hagiographic preaching: the excerpts taken from the Legenda aurea are accompanied by many other abridged Vitae, in part taken from Jean de Mailly and in part directly compiled from the Vitae of local saints. The legendary is remarkable in that it has two unedited Vitae of the bishops Clou and Arnoul of Metz and also because of a strange collection of hagiographic tales destined to be used and elaborated upon by the preacher. 

• François Dolbeau.
Prologue inédit d'un homéliaire-légendier des anciens Pays-Bas

Codex 1380 of the Jagellonian Library at Cracow is a hagiographic and homiletic lectionary of the 14th century. It is peculiar in that it is preceded by a prologue which uses that of a martyr's Passion (BHL 400 or 1787) as do two legendaries of the southern Low Countries, those of Saint-Trond and Rouge-Cloître. Its sanctorale makes it possible to state that it originated in the diocese of Utrecht, probably at Deventer. An elaborate table which involves also another volume reestablishes the order of the calendar which was jumbled by the frequent recourse to variant examplars.

Signes de sainteté et vecteurs de virtus dans les miracles posthumes du carme Albert de Trapani relatés aux XIVe-XVe siècles

Carmelite Albert of Trapani's posthumous miracles are examined here on the basis of four recensions of his Vita, written between 1385 and the end of the 15th cent. Images of Bl. Albert are often mentioned as signs of his sanctity, as well as contributing to build that sanctity. Considered as carriers of the saint's virtus, even though they may be located far away from his body (divided between Messina and Trapani), their importance remains nonethess secondary respect to the widely diffused relics and the practice of drinking some water which has been in contact with them.
