An important chapter in the rediscovery of Aristotle in the Middle Ages is the oeuvre of Bartholomew of Messina (Bartholomaeus de Messana), a translator at the court of Manfred, King of Sicily (1258 1266). However, the impact of both Bartholomew and Manfred on the cultural and intellectual life of their time remains understudied, especially in comparison to the attention received by the translators contemporary, William of Moerbeke, and by the kings father, Frederick II of Hohenstaufen.

The authors of Translating at the Court address the nature and importance of Bartholomews oeuvre (and especially his translations of Aristotle), situate Bartholomews activity in a broader context, and pay special attention to cultural life under the reign of Manfred.Contributors: Pieter Beullens (KU Leuven), Charles Burnett (Warburg Institute, London), Valerie Cordonier (CNRS KU Leuven), Pieter De Leemans (KU Leuven), Fulvio Delle Donne (Universita della Basilicata), Elisabeth Deviere (KU Leuven), Michael Dunne (National University of Ireland, Maynooth), Dimitri Gutas (Yale University), Kotzia Paraskevi (Aristotle University, Thessaloniki), Alessandra Perriccioli Saggese (Seconda Universita di Napoli), Giacinta Spinosa (Universita di Cassino), Gudrun Vuillemin-Diem (Thomas-Institut, Koln), Steven J.
