Abstract [en]

Recycling appears an appropriateterm to describe a large part of pre-modernliterary activities in Latin and Greek. The subject of the paper is the recycling of fables of the Roman poet Phaedrus, who translated prose fables of the Greek author Aesop into Latin verse. As examples of this literary process are investigated the post-millennial collections of the abbot Ademar of Chabannes(ca. 1030) and the Dominican monk Vincent of Beauvais in his encyclopaedic work Speculum maius (1247-1259). To illustrate recycling of single fables, some medieval versions of Phaedrus III.12 'Pullus ad margaritam' and Phaedrus I.1 'Lupus et agnus' are analysed.
