Founded in 1945 by P. O. Kristeller, the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum has evolved over time to reflect developments in the field of reception studies; each article begins with an overview of a Greek or Latin author’s reception and contains detailed and accurate information about manuscripts and early printed editions along with copious quotations of paratextual material. Volume 12 contains a single article of monographic length on the Metamorphoses of Ovid, a testament to the vastness and complexity of the Nachleben of Ovid’s most popular work. Textual reactions to this work throughout the centuries vary from literal to allegorical and moralizing, from faithful translations to paraphrases, from serious and scholarly commentary to satirical and recontextualizing parody, thus showing this poem’s broad cultural appeal.
