Gervase of Tilbury’s Otia Imperialia, a vast Latin encyclopaedia of thirteenth-century secular knowledge, concludes with a curious collection of mirabilia drawn from many sources, including Gervase’s own experience. The number of extant manuscripts testifies to its popularity, as does the fact that two separate translations, most likely by Jean d’Antioche and Jean de Vignay, have survived. The translations are useful testimonies to the state of the French language at that time and also provide a fascinating insight into the actual practice of translation in which the personality of the translator can still clearly be discerned. The two translations of the last section of Gervase’s work can be compared on facing pages thanks to this book.
