First critical edition of the first and longest book of an important Byzantine anthology

The Florilegium Coislinianum is a Byzantine anthology dating to the ninth or tenth century. It deals with subjects ranging from the creation of angels to sin and virtues. Although it is an important document, it has only recently received due attention from the scholarly community. The present edition is the editio princeps of the first book of the Florilegium Coislinianum. It is part of a much larger collaborative project, in the framework of which a research team, based at KU Leuven, is currently studying and editing various sections of this florilegium.

The critical text presented here is based upon a detailed examination of all the known witnesses of the florilegium, and has been thoroughly compared with its sources. It is supplemented with a philological introduction which studies the manuscript tradition and the relationship of the manuscripts, explains the orthographical peculiarities of the tradition, defines the ratio edendi and discusses the most relevant textual corruptions of the archetype.


Tomás Fernández studied Classics at Buenos Aires, where he graduated in 2006. After a short stay in Paris, he began his doctorate at KU Leuven, where he successfully defended his dissertation in 2010. Since 2011, he is a full-time researcher of the Argentinian Research Council (Conicet).
