Abstract

SUMMARYJohn of Garland (fl. early 13th century) was a prolific writer of grammatical treatises and teaching texts and yet he has been almost completely neglected by the historian of linguistics. He was however recognised in his own day and for some time afterwards as a scholar and teacher of some importance. This paper seeks to list as exhaustively as possible the many versions of his treatises and texts still extant in the manuscript collections of European libraries. An examination of this large corpus of unedited material could resolve the matter of the authorship of a number of treatises which have traditionally been assigned to John but which may on examination prove to be of different authorship; equally well, it would be useful if it were possible to assign him his real place in the medieval grammatical tradition, i.e., was he the last of the literary grammarians or one of the first of the logical grammarians?RÉSUMÉJean de Garlande (première moitié du XIIIe siècle) fut un grand producteur de traités de grammaire et de manuels d'enseignement. Il n'en pas moins été complètement oublié par les historiens de la linguistique. Et pourtant il fut célèbre à son époque et le resta quelque temps après sa mort comme universitaire et pédagogue de talent. Cet article cherche à dresser une liste aussi exhaustive que possible des diverses versions de ses traités et textes actuellement éparpillés dans les recueils de manuscrits des bibliothèques européennes. Un examen de ces documents devrait permettre de faire le tri parmi les traités traditionnellement imputés à John, mais dont un certain nombre devrait se révéler apocryphe. D'un autre point de vue, nous aurons tout à gagner à lui rendre sa véritable place dans la lignée des grammairiens du Moyen Age, autrement dit, à répondre à la question de savoir s'il est le dernier des grammairiens littéraires ou l'un des premiers logiciens.
