Des textes patristiques dans la « collection philosophique » ? Réflexions à partir de la postérité du manuscrit d'Harvard

Abstract : Only two of the manuscripts belonging to the "philosophical collection" contain patristic texts (Vat. gr. 2249 and Cambridge [MA], Typ. 46); yet these texts are essentially closely related to philosophy, especially neoplatonic philosophy (Pseudo-Denys; Theodoret of Cyr, Therapeutic; Nemesius of Emesa; Gregory of Nyssa, On the Soul and the Resurrection). The study of the Harvard ms. (Typ. 46) sheds some light on its history: in the mid-16th century it was in the hands of Mathousalas Kabbades, known as Macheir, who added extracts from Psellos. It then belonged to Frederik North, then to Henry Belward Ray and Guglielmo Libri, before coming into the Phillipps collection. A very important witness to the texts he transmitted, he left no direct posterity, as is also largely the case with the other witnesses in the collection, at least until quite late in the day.
