Richard GREENFIELD. A Revision in the Dating of Euthymius the Younger of Thessalonike.
Une petite correction, apportée au texte grec du chapitre 4 de la Vie d’Euthyme le Jeune de Thessalonique (BHG 655), amène à réexaminer les dates-clés traditionnellement admises concernant la vie et la carrière du saint. Cet article soutient en effet qu’Euthyme naquit en 820 (et non en 823 ou 824) et qu’il abandonna sa famille en 838 (et non en 841 ou 842). En conséquence, d’autres modifications peuvent être proposées au sujet de la datation de la fondation de ses établissements monastiques à Peristerai, près de Thessalonique, et de leur achèvement.
Jean-Daniel KAESTLI. Les Actes de Paul et Thècle dans la tradition latine. Recherches sur les manuscrits des diverses formes dela Passio Theclae et leur signalement dans la Bibliotheca hagiographica latina.
The manuscripts of the various versions of the PassioTheclae are listed on the basis of Oscar von Gebhardt’s edition (1902) and of the instruments developed by the Bollandists (data base BHLms; manuscript card index). They have been systematically identified and classified with the help of the numbers introduced in the 1911 BHL Supplement (BHLs), in particular those which have been listed by the Bollandists under an old number of the BHL’s 1st edition (1898-1901) or under the heading sine numero. The study reveals the necessity of a new edition of some of the texts edited by Gebhardt – this is the case withregard to version A already republished in Apocrypha 2016, as well as the version Cb, for which a list of corrections has been drawn up. The study also deals with the texts of three unedited epitomes (MSS Munich Clm 18100, Trier Stadtbibl. 1172 and Munich Clm 2959).
Klaus KRÖNERT. Le dossier hagiographique de saint Godehard, évêque de Hildesheim au XIe s.
The aim of this article is to reexamine the hagiographic dossier of Bishop Godehard of Hildesheim (1022-1038). From this, it appears that Vita Ia (BHL 3581) must be considered to be a “preparatory work” compiled during the life of the saint, which enabled its author, Wolfhere, to compile a veritable saint’s Life (BHL 3582) in about 1054. This Life was complemented in the 1070’s by a collection of miracles (also BHL 3582). As far as the other texts of the dossier are concerned, only two hagiographical undertakings are notable: the composition in about 1132 of the Translatio (BHL 3584), which was later complemented by some individual miracles, and in the 14th century the composition of Vita IIIa (BHL 3590), the main component of which is the Miracula in vita patrata (BHL 3583), which until now had never been dated and which have generally but erroneously been considered to be individual work.
