Corolla Gemina: estudios de filologia latina dedicados a los profesores Jose Castro y Pilar Muro. Ed. by Miguel Rodriguez-Pantoja. Ciclos de filologia clasica, 6. Cordoba: Servicio de publicaciones, Universidad de Cordoba, 2012. 121 pages. This collection of essays, in honor of two colleagues at the University of Cordoba, includes three pieces on Neo-Latin themes. JuliAn Solana Pujalte's "Un himno a San Rafael de finales del siglo XVI" edits and sets into its historical context an unknown hymn to St. Raphael that was published in a small school book (Cordova, 1598) and aimed at the teaching of grammar in Jesuit colleges. "Contribucion al estudio de la Didascalia multiplex de Francisco Fernandez de Cordova: los capitols XV, XXII y XLIII" offers an edition, analysis, and translation into Spanish of three chapters of Didascalia multiplex, written by Francisco Fernandez de Cordova (1565-1626): XV (Quid sit servitus; & unde dicta; ipsius origo; & quare a iure gentium introducta, & iuri naturali dicatur contraria, cum ab ipsomet emanarit); XXII (Morem appendendi ad parietes aedium sacrarum tabellas pictas, cereos, hominum simulachra, arma, vestes, caesariem, donariaque alia ab antiquis desumptum, & cur voti causa capilli tondeantur); and XLIII (Quid sit nobilitas, & unde dicta; nobilem pro noto, ignobilem pro ignoto antiquos usurpasse). And finally, Joaquin Mellado Rodriguez's "Inscripcion latina en el altar de nuestro Padre Jesus Nazareno de Fernan Nunez (Cordoba)" offers a philological study of an eighteenth-century Latin epigraph engraved on a sarcophagus that was later used as an altar in the Chapel of Our Father Jesus in the parish church of St. Marina of Fernan Nunez (Cordoba). It also provides information about the people who appear in the inscription and identifies those who installed the sarcophagus inside the church, as well as other details that are important for the history of the area. The books in this series appear only intermittently, but they are a good example of a type of publication that is common in Spain and well worth reading, but difficult to obtain elsewhere.
