The Manipulus florum, composed in 1306 by Thomas of Ireland, is a compilation of nearly six thousand excerpts, organized under 266 alphabetically ordered lemmata, from dozens of authors, including doctors and fathers of the Latin and Greek churches, medieval writers, and classical authors. It was one of the most prominent works of reference from its creation until the seventeenth century, and is a work of interest to philologists, philosophers, and historians not only of the medieval world, but also, given its wide diffusion and reception, of the Renaissance and of humanism. The ten essays that comprise this collection join the tradition of studies on the Manipulus florum begun by Richard and Mary Rouse in 1979, and include close analyses of specific lemmata as well as broader studies that should appeal to students and scholars in various fields.
