The Latin Alexander Trallianus

Donnerstag, 25. Juli 2019, 16:15

Sitzungssaal 1, Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften

Alfons-Goppel-Str. 11, München

The lecture discusses a sixth-century Latin medical treatise translated from Greek (based on Alexander of Tralles’s Therapeutics and On Fevers), which has never been critically edited, but enjoyed enormous popularity and remained on university syllabuses until the 18th century. Questions include: How many translators were involved? How ‘correct’ or poorly controlled is the Latin of the various parts? What was the first language of the translator(s)? Are there features of the Latin that link the Latin Alexander with other Latin medical texts? Are there features of the Latin that allow us to locate the translator(s) in space and time?

A marble bust of the Thesaurus founder Eduard Wölfflin returns to the academy

On May 13, 2016, a bust of Eduard Wölfflin, which was long lost, was placed in front of the Thesaurus Library. Former President Dietmar Willoweit unveiled the work of the sculptor Hermann Hahn in the presence of colleagues and academy-members. The work and artist were presented in two lectures and a small exhibition, which can still be visited.
