OPPORTUNITY FOR MEDIEVALIST-HUMANIST-OLD FRENCH SCHOLAR
Family of recently deceased professor invites inquiries from
scholar interested in completing remaining small section of a
textual edition of the British Library Old Royal Collection manuscript
20.D.1 (a manuscript in Old French dating from Naples ca. 1340 and
dealing with the Trojan War story), and also preparing suitable
introduction and possibly doing translation into English.
Scholar would have free access to professor's extensive library of
microfilmed manuscripts and other sources, along with free
maintenance on premises (virtually on DePauw University campus)
during project, if desired. Undertaking might well lend itself to
being a master's or doctoral thesis.
