Nouvelles notes critiques sur les deux premiers livres de la chronique de Geoffroi Malaterra

Abstract : In this contribution to the establishment and critical analysis of G. Malaterra’s chronicle, forty-one passages from Book I and Book II (new edition published in 2001) are examined, as well as twenty-seven more passages in the notes. Based on a personal collation of the Catania manuscript (Bibl. Universitaria Vent. Arm. 1.99), which the editor has to consider a major document in spite of its late date of execution, the text demonstrates that the interpretations of this key-witness have not always been scrupulously respected and that it is still possible to improve the current printed text in many places. It also shows the benefits that can be expected of conjectural criticism, based on the painstaking study of mistakes and the circumstances that conditioned them.
