Abstract

What do we know for certain about the medieval transmission and reception of The Golden Ass or Metamorphoses of Apuleius? Our firmest evidence is codicological. The traditional stemma (fig. 1) shows some key moments, beginning, in the 1050s–80s, with the creation, at Monte Cassino, of F (Florence, Biblioteca Laurenziana 68.2), a manuscript containing the Metamorphoses, the Apologia, and the Florida.
