Research on the Greek versions of the Life of Hilarion (BHL 3879)
Composed by Jerome in Latin at the end of the 4th century, the Life of the monk Hilarion, known as the founder of Gaziote monasticism, was the subject of various Greek translations carried out in various contexts. We will review the main Greek versions of the Life of Hilarion, in order to trace the different stages of the linguistic and cultural transfer of the legend of Hilarion to Byzantium. The first part of our conferences will focus on the preparation of the critical edition of the Life BHG 752, hitherto unpublished except for its beginning. This translation constitutes a very rare case, which can be compared to literal Latin translations of Greek hagiographic works. Secondly, we will deal with different rewritings of the Latin legend of the monk Hilarion in the Greek-speaking world, starting with the Life BHG 753 and its reception in Byzantium.
The conferences will take place at 54, boulevard Raspail 75006 Paris (room 20), from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. (UTC +2), and will take place in a hybrid format on Teams.
