medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

A digitized version(of the 1912 edition) is available online at the following address:

 

http://www.hist.msu.ru/Departments/Medieval/Cappelli/

 

A bit awkward to use, but no more so than the original.

 

I have never been able to locate a digitized copy on any of the usual sites. According to the Karlsruhe catalogue (KIT Bibliothek) Persee (www.Persee.fr) has a copy available, but I seem unable to reach that site tonight. Hathi Trust does as well, but one needs to be connected with a member institution to use Hathi Trust. But the usual suspects for locating ditized copies of out-of-copyright books (the Internet Archive; Google) come up empty.

 

On ABE Books, a search for the title brings up a list of 42 copies, starting at US$34.22. And on Maremagnum (in Italy) there are 21 copies, at various prices.

The back pages of Cappelli's Dizionario di abbreviature latine ed italiane has a section: Sigle ed abbreviature epigrafiche. There is a fairly recent edition for sale.

Isn't there a good standard source reference work for Latin abbreviations?

Could T F be a half-erased Roman I (with cross-bars) E for IE(sus)?

Dear Paul,

If I understand you right, the inscription is somehting like

S^ MARI^
I
H
L
TF
XP
X(?)

IHL is frequent for I(sra)H(e)L = Israel (see L. Traube, Nomina scara, 1907, pp. 106ss.), and XP (or XPC, XPS) for XR(ICTOC) = Christus. I have nothing, however, for TF and X(?) that would help to establish a coherent phrasing.

Kind regards, O.

A colleague is puzzling over a fragment of a fresco of the Virgin Mary and (probably) Christ. Over Mary is written horizontally S (abbrev sign over) MARI (abbrev sign over) for SANCTA MARIA, and then vertically under the S the following letters:  I H L TF (conjoined = some form of tuus filius?). Then XP, then probably X. Perhaps the S is meant to be read as part of the sequence.

 

Does anyone have any suggestion how to interpret these letters? -- Paul
