Article excerpt

<>: Melanges en l'honneur de Jean-Louis Charlet. Edited by Herbert de la Portbarre-Viard and Annick StoehrMonjou. Collection des Etudes Augustiniennes, Serie Antiquite, 201. Paris: Institut d'Etudes Augustiniennes, 2016. XXXVIII + 630 pp. 76 [euro]. As past president of the International Association for Neo-Latin Studies, Jean-Louis Charlet is well known to many readers of NLN. What is perhaps less well known is just how wide his interests are and how productive he has been over his forty-five-year teaching career. Author of some 230 scholarly publications along with another eighty-three reviews, Charlet has worked in the entire range of post-classical Latin. His books and articles on late antiquity and the Middle Ages are anchored in a major edition of Claudian, while he is probably best known as a Neo-Latinist for his editions of Niccolo Perotti, although his work in this field covers poetry and metrics; lexicography and encyclopedias; philology, epistolography, commentaries, and the humanist reception of classical texts; history of paper, books, and libraries; and ancient, medieval, and modern numismatics. Less well known outside France is the role Charlet has played in the administrative and political life of the French university: from 1995 to 2004 he was secretary general of the Federation Nationale des Syndicats Autonomes de l'Enseignement Superieur et de la Recherche; from 1996-1997, secretary general of the Confederation syndicale de l'Education nationale (CSEN); and from 2004 to 2007, president of the Federation Nationale des Syndicats Autonomes de l'Enseignement Superieur et de la Recherche (renamed Autonomesup). Now technically en pension, as he likes to say, he continues to maintain a work schedule that would kill many a much younger man.

It is little surprise, then, that Charlet's friends and admirers would assemble a melange in his honor. It begins with an introduction by the editors and a useful list of Charlet's publications, followed by a suitably lengthy tabula gratulatoria. The volume quite properly divides into two sections, reflecting the major areas of its honoree's scholarship. The first one, on late antiquity and the Middle Ages, offers fourteen essays in the first subsection: Florence Garambois-Vasquez, "Dire l'indicible dan les epigrammes d'Ausone: quelques exemples"; Franca Ela Consolino, "Le epistole di Claudiano a Olibrio e Probino (carm. min. 40 et 41)"; Isabella Gualandri, "Immagini di Marte in Claudiano"; Henriette Harich-Schwarzbauer, "Claudians Bellum Gildonicum irritiert. Zwischen 'Blitzkrieg' und 'Furstenspiegel'"; Heinz Hofmann, "Weitere Uberlegungen zu Andachtsbildern' bei Claudian"; Andre-Franqois Basson, "Consoling Pneumatius and Fidelis: Paulinus of Nola's carm. 31"; Jean-Michelle Poinsotte, "Rutilius Namatianus, De reditu suo 1, 377-398: un testament antijuif (?) de la Rome paienne"; Michele Cutino, "Per un inquadramento dell' Heptateuchos di 'Cipriano Gallo': cronologia relativa e finalita compositive"; Paul-Augustin Deproost, "'Tout est ne ici'. La pedagogie des delices dans le paradis de Claudius Marius Victorinus"; Annick Stoehr-Monjou, "L'apparition d'Apollon dans le Rapt d'Helene de Dracontius: mis en scene d'une reecriture sous forme de mosaique virgilienne (Romul. 8, 183-212)"; Vincent Zarini, "Ennode entre Prudence, Ambroise et le 'monde': a propos de deux poemes de la Paraenesis didascalia"; Michael Roberts, "Stylistic Innovation and Variation in the Poetry of Venantius Fortunatus"; Michel Jean-Louis Perrin, "L'utilisation des citations bibliques par l'abbe Raban Maur dans le De humore parentum (834): quelques considerations litteraires, historiques et politiques"; and Sylvain Leroy, "La recriture des Noces de Cana dans le De Gratia Novi Testamenti (XIe s.): de la metamorphose de l'eau a la mutation d'un genre. …
