Founded in 1945, with its first volume published in 1960, the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum has attracted the support and participation of an international team of scholars interested in classical tradition during the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Each article treats a separate classical author, beginning with a detailed essay on the author’s reception from antiquity to 1600. This Fortuna is followed by a comprehensive list both of printed and manuscript commentaries in Latin on the author and, in the case of Greek authors, a list of Latin translations as well.

This site provides Open Access to previously published volumes of the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum; beginning with Volume X, printed volumes of the CTC will be published by the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies. The current issue is:
