Abstract:
This thesis presents the first steps towards a critical edition of the ‘De podagra’ (‘On Gout’), a pre-Gariopontean treatise excerpted from the Latin translation of the Greek ‘Therapeutica’ by Alexander of Tralles. From information collated, from manuscripts and printed texts, from four textual traditions, the Greek ‘Therapeutica’, the Latin Alexander, the ‘De podagra’, and Gariopontus’ ‘Passionarius’, a provisional Latin text of the ‘De podagra’ has been produced which looks forward to the last of these traditions, Gariopontus’ ‘Passionarius’. A full English translation of the ‘De podagra’ is given. The footnotes to the provisional Latin text of the ‘De podagra’ serve to illustrate the textual tradition and highlight points of relevance for the content of the text itself. These footnotes also contain information of significance to the reconstruction of each of the other three traditions. An appendix of ‘materia medica’ and an ‘index uerborum’ are included.
