Canonizing Paul

Chapter 4 investigates Rufinus of Syria's Vulgate revision of Paul's letters as transmitted in Codex Fuldensis, a sixth-century manuscript that also codified capitula, argumenta, and other paratexts of diverse editorial origins. Some of these editorial products contrast sharply with the nascent Pelagianism prefaced in the Primum Quaeritur prologue composed for this Vulgate revision: Marcionite, Pelagian, and anti-Pelagian hermeneutics all jostle uneasily on the margins of Codex Fuldensis despite the ecumenical, editorial aegis of its producer, Victor of Capua. The chapter explores not only the interaction between an edition's text and paratexts but also the juxtaposition of paratextual remnants of previous editions, which sometimes convey drastically opposing interpretive stances.
