“Auctor est aequivocum”: Authenticity, Authority and Authorship from the Classical Antiquity to the
Prolepsis Association is delighted to announce its second international postgraduate conference whose theme will be the investigation into the concepts of authenticity and authorship of literary and historical texts from the Classical Antiquity to the Medieval and the Byzantine Age. “Auctor est aequivocum” Honorius of Autun writes in his Expositio in Cantica Canticorum (prol., PL 172, col. 348), underlining the ambiguity of the term “Auctor”. We would like use this quotation as a starting point for a discussion on the vast number of issues that derive from the concepts of authority, authorship and authenticity and on the problems that relate to their – often controversial – definitions.
