Lost in translation: Sicard of Cremona's Mitrale John Weretka
278 Victoria Parade
East Melbourne 3002
Drawing on recent experiences of translating the first volume of Sicard of Cremona’s nine-volume liturgical commentary, De mitrale, as part of research in a doctoral programme, this presentation questions what it means to undertake significant translation of medieval literary materials. This presentation will examine topics including what it means to be an author in the Middle Ages, how and whether one can respect authorial ‘voice’ in translation, and how genre affects the translation of texts such as a liturgical commentary.
