The summer school takes place at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität in Jena/Germany from 24 September 2023 to 28 September 2023.
In the course of the summer school we will attempt to shed light on typical traits of heteronomous texts by common lectures and presentations of typical examples of heteromous texts. The following questions will be particularly addressed:
1) What are typical traits of books (codices, papyrus rolls etc.) containing heteronomous texts? How do I check editions by comparing them to the original books written by hand?
2) What are general strategies of the authors of heteronomous text? By which methods do they constitute a new, coherent text by quoting or explaining certain models?
3) How do heteronomous texts, e.g. collections and commentaries, treat their pretexts? How do they embed their quotations, and which peculiarities do their quotations of collected texts, of excerpts, lemmata etc. have?
4) How far does the (philosophical, theological etc.) content of heteronomous texts (e.g. commentaries) depend on their pretexts, and to which degree does it mirror contemporary discourses?
Participants are encouraged to suggest further questions of interest during.
