Title: Le chaînon manquant
Subtitle: La source de l'Épitomé de Procope (Type II) dans la Chaîne du Vatican
Author(s): DANEZAN, Meredith
Volume: 89 Date: 2019
The relationships between the various types of Catenae on the Proverbs, which all derive, in one way or another, from two mother Catenae, the archetypal Epitome of Procopius and/or the archetypal Catena Hauniensis, have, despite a century of research, not yet be enlightened. This article demonstrates that the Parisian Catena (type II Karo-Lietzmann) as preserved in the Vatican Catena (type III) corresponds to the form of a Catena on the Proverbs that came down to us through the codd. Cambridge, Trinity College, O.1.55 and O.1.54. This Catena takes the form of a type II Catena augmented with excerpts from John Chrysostom’s Commentary on the Proverbs. This configuration explains the origin of some of the Chrysostomian texts present in the Vatican Catena and opens the way for a new interpretation of the Chrysostomian 'doublets' which can be found in this Catena.
