Index
In this index, an 'f' after a number indicates a separate reference on the next page, and an "ff" separate references on the next two pages. A continuous discussion over two or more pages is indicated by a span of numbers, e.g., "57-59." Passim is used for a cluster of references in close but not necessarily consecutive sequence. Entries are alphabetized letter by letter, ignoring word and syllable breaks, hyphens, and accents, with the exception of personal names, which are ordered first under the surname and then under the given name.
