About the journal

RursuSpicae is a journal devoted to the transmission of texts and knowledge from Antiquity to the end of the Middle Ages. It is the merger of the journals Rursus and Spicae, whose scientific objectives are similar.

The textual transmission concerns not only Greek and Latin texts, but also Hebrew, Syriac and Arabic texts that have nourished medieval and modern culture. The journal publishes articles on the passage, reuse, compilation and amplification of knowledge, themes and texts of auctoritates, from Antiquity to the end of the medieval period. Literature known as “secondary literature” is not a scholarly, marginal, or decadent area of the literary field, but the very key to this endeavor, since all literature is a rewriting of reality. This conviction of the fundamentally hypertextual nature of creation is not a dogma but a fundamental perception of the factors of mutation, diversion and renewal of tradition.

The journal offers thematic issues focusing in particular on the transmission of knowledge of the natural sciences. It publishes monographs in special issues.

The digital journal Rursus. Poiétique, réception et réécriture des textes antiques focused on studies on rewriting in Antiquity and Byzantium. It was designed by researchers on ancient languages at the University of Nice, who worked together from 2003 to 2007 in the young LA.LI.A team, and has since been published by CEPAM (UMR 7264). ISSN 1951-669X.

The journal Spicae. Cahiers de l'Atelier Vincent de Beauvais, was created in 1977 by Jean Schneider and Monique Paulmier-Foucart to publish the results of the work of the Atelier Vincent de Beauvais on medieval encyclopedism. From 1978 to 1986 the journal was published in hard copy at the University of Nancy with the collaboration of the I.R.H.T. (Institut de recherche et d’histoire des textes). From December 2011, the journal, which also hosts work from SourcEncyMe (Sources of Medieval Encyclopedias), which treats annotated corpuses of Latin medieval encyclopedias, resumed as an online publication (under ISSN 2257-6819 on the Atelier Vincent de Beauvais website) for three issues before merging with Rursus. Past issues of Spicae are available in pdf format on this website.
