For the Lezionario Farnese, as for all other facsimile editions published by Franco Cosimo Panini Editore, a commentary or treatise is also provided. The contributors are selected from among the most highly renowned experts and scholars in the field.
Preparation of the commentary takes place concurrently with the facsimile work itself. The commentary is therefore fully updated with the findings emerging from the photographic campaign. This work provides experts and scholars with an opportunity to look into all aspects relating to the ‘career’ of the codex as a work of historic and artistic interest. Fully comprehensive information is provided for scholars in the form of files for each manuscript page.
The commentary has been published also for distribution without the codex itself (bound edition with dust jacket).
