MetadataShow full item record
Ever since its first edition, scholars of Orrmulum have conventionally divided its introduction into three sections: Dedication, Preface, Texts and Introduction. Indeed, modern editorial practice would seem to justify this division. Yet this article argues that a new division of the opening of Orrmulum may be proposed once the theory of medieval authorship is brought to bear on the contemporary tradition of the Aristotelian prologue.
