  • Title: Santa Maria Egiziaca tra Oriente e Occidente. La "Vita Sanctae Mariae Aegyptiacae Meretricis" di Paolo Diacono Napoletano [In the ninth century, Paul the Deacon translated a Greek life of Mary the Egyptian into Latin. Mary had an extensive cult in the East, and it had reached the West by the sixth century. Paul came from Naples, a center of Mary's cult and its texts. His translation was free enough to make his own theological points in a style that was unique. The article ends with a series of tables giving Paul's Latin renderings of Greek words and phrases. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
