« Les Synonyma d’Isidore de Séville dans le Moyen Âge hispanique »

Abstract : This article studies the diffusion of the Synonyma of Isidore of Seville in Medieval Spain: it gives a list of manuscripts of Spanish origin or provenance (with some indication about their content), of lost copies which are mentioned in old inventories, and of texts which borrow directly from the isidorian treatise (with some new hypothesis, especially about the Liber de modo bene uiuendi attributed to Bernard of Clairvaux). It appears that the Synonyma had an immediate popularity, a regular success throughout the Middle Ages and an important circulation at the end of medieval period. Actually this could also be the summary of the diffusion of Synonyma in the whole Europe; there are few specificities of the Iberian Peninsula.
