Founded in 1946 by Paul Oskar Kristeller, the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum has become an indispensable research tool for scholars interested in the history of the classical tradition in the West during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Each article treats a separate classical author, beginning with a detailed essay on the author’s reception from antiquity to A.D. 1600. This ‘Fortuna’ is followed by a comprehensive list both of manuscript and printed commentaries on each Latin author and, in the case of Greek authors, a list of Latin translations as well. Since the publication of the first volume in 1960, the Catalogus has published articles on nearly a hundred classical authors, with dozens more in active preparation. The project boasts an international team of contributors from fourteen countries in Europe and North America.
