Nearly all of the financial support provided by SSHRC and WLU (acknowledged at the bottom of the Homepage) has been expended on the salaries of the following undergraduate and graduate student research assistants whose contributions to this project are greatly appreciated:
Assistant Editors* for the Manipulus florum edition:
Sarah Brand (2003-4); Elena Crupi (2006-7); and Nicholas Must (2004-7).
Editorial Assistants* for the Manipulus florum edition and/or Auxiliary Resources
Jason Sager (2003, 2005); Jan Uhde (2005); Elena Crupi (2007); Nicholas Must (2007, 2009); Carlisle Mackie (2011); Jordan Burrows (2011); Samantha James (2012-13); Jennifer Parkinson (2013); and Alexandra Krawecki (2013).
(* Editorial Assistants were tasked with source searching, data entry and proofreading; Assistant Editors were involved in the same work as Editorial Assistants but were also tasked with collating portions of the text in three manuscript copies and four of the early printed editions of the Manipulus florum).
Mary Rouse and Richard Rouse (University of California, Los Angeles) have graciously encouraged this Project, which is greatly indebted to their seminal monograph on the Manipulus florum.
Thomas Falmagne has generously agreed to participate in the Project as a Contributing Editor by consulting his database of the quotations in the Flores paradisi, an earlier florilegium that was among the indirect sources used by Thomas of Ireland in compiling the Manipulus.
István Bejczy, director of the "Genealogy of Morals" Program at Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen (2001-6), provided advice regarding the De fructibus carnis et spiritus.
Mark Zier (San Francisco Theological Seminary) provided advice regarding the Glossa ordinaria.
Emilio Bonfiglio (Université de Genève) provided advice regarding Anianus of Celeda's Latin translations of Chrysostom's homilies on Matthew.
Thomas Ricklin (Ludwig-Maximilians Universität München) provided advice regarding John of Wales' Compendiloquium.
Andrew Kane and Frank Tompa (University of Waterloo) developed Janus, the intertextuality search engine created for this web resource, and its textual database.
Googlebooks' online provision of a volume of the editio princeps of John Chrysostom's Opera omnia (Venice, 1503) and John of Wales' Compendiloquium and Breuiloquium (Rome, 1655) enabled the compilation of several digital transcriptions that were used to enhance the critical edition of the Manipulus florum.
The project has also benefited greatly from the assistance of librarians at the following Ontario universities: Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Waterloo, the University of Guelph, and the University of Toronto (especially the Library of the Pontifical Institute for Mediaeval Studies in St. Michael's College). Enfin, l'editeur voudrait remercier les fonctionnaires des départements des manuscrits de la Bibliothèque Nationale de France et de la Bibliothèque Universitaire de Paris, pour leur aide précieuse.
The editor also acknowledges and thanks colleagues in the Department of History, Medieval Studies Program, and the Office of Research Services at Wilfrid Laurier University for their assistance and support.
