abstract

In his well-known Denkschrift (1847), Theodor Mommsen, by then not yet thirty years old, focused on researching extensively the manuscript collections of various libraries, making order in the jumble of papers (Papierwust) dispersed in archival holdings; in short, he was aiming at a systematic ordering, above all for a correct definition of a titulus genuinus and a titulus falsus, a problem with which his scholarly research was always concerned, even in its most minute details. In 1881, Mommsen promoted the foundation of a Bibliotheca epigraphica manuscripta, which should have indexed and described the enormous quantity of handwritten witnesses of Latin inscriptions scattered through various institutions, public and private. One wonders about the possibilities of starting such a pioneering Mommsenian project anew, creating a shared database, through the synergy of the libraries and universities that have shown interest towards this specific research field.
