  • Title: La "Vita sanctae Theodorae" (BHL 8070). La revisione imperfetta di una traduzione perfettibile [The legend of Theodora, who repented her sins in a monastery disguised as a man, originated in Greek. The tale was received in the West via Naples and Rome beginning in the ninth century. A Greek community in Rome at the time of Pope Paschal I is a plausible conduit for the transmission of the "Vita" of Theodora. The Latin texts show many signs of imperfect translations from the Greek. The Appendix presents the Latin text of the "Vita Theodorae," Cap. 241-242. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
