Martianus Capella’s De nuptiis Philologiae et Mercurii opens with a double prologue, written in verse and in prose. In the prose section, the author is questioned by his son about the meaning of the hymn he has just recited and which the young man considers to be the creation of an idler. The verb with which this kind of activity is defined is, in the manuscript tradition, the Greek neologism γυμνολογίζεις, which could be interpreted on the basis of another neologism, γυμνολογία, a term which appears in the theological disputes on the human and/or divine nature of Jesus.

Abstract

Martianus Capella’s De nuptiis Philologiae et Mercurii opens with a double prologue, written in verse and in prose. In the prose section, the author is questioned by his son about the meaning of the hymn he has just recited and which the young man considers to be the creation of an idler. The verb with which this kind of activity is defined is, in the manuscript tradition, the Greek neologism γυμνολογίζεις, which could be interpreted on the basis of another neologism, γυμνολογία, a term which appears in the theological disputes on the human and/or divine nature of Jesus.
