Sample text

An obvious possibility for the intermediary would be the Florilegium Morale Oxoniense. This contains 18 quotations from letters 89-124, but none of the ten quotations in Communiloquium is included, and neither of the two in the Commentary and Collations on John. It is difficult to think of another intermediary which would fit the bill, because accurate references are an essential part ofjohn's work. Certainly by the time he wrote Communiloquium John's references to the Epistulae included the letter number at the very least.

This might provide a quick and easy answer to our search for John's source of Gellius quotations. We have John writing his Compendiloquium in Paris around the early 1270s and making use of a full Gellius text, and we have a full Gellius text in the Sorbonne library at the same period. Very possibly John used the Sorbonne text. But, even if he did, we have only half an answer. We deduced that when Communiloquium was written, John knew only Nodes Atticae 1-7. This means that the Fournival Gellius should have not been his source when writing Communiloquium, and that Communiloquium must have been written before John had access to this complete copy of the text.

Ogilvie, 1976, pp. 38-40. 46 The 'Breviloquium de Virtutibus' certain delight in finding it used to illustrate the Roman capacity for victory without vanity. 18 We turn now to others ofJohn's attitudes, and to the question of what the Breviloquium de Virtutibus can contribute to our understanding of them.
