"On félicitera auteur et éditeur du courage qu'il a certainement fallu pour procéder ainsi à cette mise à jour" (P.-M. Bogaert, in: Revue bénédictine, 125, 2015/1, p. 204)


Greti Dinkova-Bruun is Associate Fellow at the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies in Toronto. She has published widely on a range of topics within the field of Medieval studies. A noted manuscript scholar, she is the author of a number of critical editions and translations of medieval texts including the poetry of Alexander of Ashby, Opera Poetica (2004) and The Ancestry of Jesus (2005). She has been elected Editor-in-Chief for the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum series. She is also the review editor for The Journal of Medieval Latin.


The present fascicle supplements the 2007 edition of the two anonymous poems Liber prefigurationum Christi et Ecclesie and Liber de gratia Noui Testamenti. It offers a number of improvements at various levels to the original edition. The main witness of the text has been re-examined, which has resulted in the uncovering of some complementary readings, especially in the Liber de gratia. A completely revised edition of this text has been printed, together with complete new indices to both poems.
