Abstract

Though Eusebio of Caesarea’s De martyribus Palestinae has never been translated in Latin during the Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, it is the source of some martyrdom accounts known in the Latin West. In this paper, the author draws a list of Latin and Greek versions of two of these hagiographies, notably the Passio Theodosiae virginis and the Passio Romani monachi, and clarifies the relationship between them: the two texts show some analogies in their transmission. In particular, the most ancient versions of both texts are included in the codex Vat. lat. 5771, a passionarium written at Bobbio in the IXth century. This manuscript collects many Passiones translated from Greek and has been classified by Delehaye and Siegmund as a ‘gallic’ passionarium. Some internal and external pieces of evidence seem to strengthen the hypothesis of the circulation of these two texts in southern Gallia in the first centuries of the Middle Ages.
