“…magnifica edizione…”


Ruedi Imbach, Université de la Sorbonne

This is the edizione nazionale of Dante’s Latin treatise on political theory, which replaces Pier Giorgio Ricci’s 1966 edition of the text. The Introduction traces the history of critical engagement with the surviving manuscript evidence, and offers a detailed analysis of the text’s transmission history.
