The Ars edendi Lectures are organized by the research programme of the same name based at Stockholm University and funded by the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation. Both the programme and the lectures focus on editorial method and theory as applied to dynamic textual traditions of medieval Latin and Greek works. For the Lecture Series, leading scholars are invited to share their expertise regarding textual criticism and the art of editing.

The Arts of Editing Medieval Greek and Latin: A Casebook.
The Arts of Editing Medieval Greek and Latin will give the reader an opportunity to enter the editorial laboratory and see the editor at work, reflecting over editorial methods and problems in search of the best ways to solve them. The contributing authors were asked to outline a specific editorial challenge, explain their own solution, indicating (where appropriate) the main innovation of the approach adopted, and as far as possible, to compare this approach to other approaches and discuss their advantages and disadvantages. The case studies cover several common medieval genres, entailing more or less complicated editorial challenges, all of them providing important sources for understanding the medieval world.
