Abstract

No major review of the textual history and development of the main
group of medieval Latin abbreviated versions, or redactions, of the Visio Pauli
has been published since Theodore Silverstein's fundamental studies in 1935
and 1959. However, twenty-eight further witnesses of this group have come to
notice since then, but have not been studied in detail.
This thesis examines each of the new texts in the context of the redaction
to which they belong or are related, and their implications for the filiation
established by Silverstein. In the case of Redaction IV this has required the
classification of all the witnesses of that redaction for the first time, and in the
case of the composite redactions drawn from several individual redactions, this
has enabled a more precise identification of their components. In the case of
Redaction IX one of the new texts supplies the section presently missing from
the published edition.
A separate volume of Appendices contains transcriptions from the mss.
of the texts examined in the thesis, together with other reference material.
