The project aims to draw up a critical edition, translation, and commentary of the pathological section of three texts that are essential for the history of medieval medicine: the Kitāb al-Malakī by al-Maǧūsī (second half of the 10th century) and its two Latin translations, the Pantegni by Constantine the African (late 11th century) and the Liber Regalis by Stephen of Antioch (early 12th century). Based on a thorough examination of the manuscript tradition, it will be possible to establish a reliable text of each work and trace a detailed history of its transmission. In the case of the Pantegni, specific attention will be paid to examining the presence of authorial variants as evidence of different stages in the drafting of the translation. The Greek sources of the Kitāb will be analyzed, as well as its relationship with the previous Arabic production, and the main features of the methods inspiring the two translations will be identified. Finally, the study will highlight the lexical and content originality of the two versions in the context of their composition and study their fortune in the Salernitan Practicae.
