Chapter 1 surveys editorial practices utilized in the preparation of ancient corpora under the rubrics of text, contents, and paratexts (i.e. ancillary materials). It contends that editors' conceptions regarding textual authenticity were shaped by their interpretations and that, as a result, editions transmitted hermeneutics. In the transmission and alteration of the text, the selection and arrangement of the content, and deployment of paratexts (such as prologues, bioi, hypotheses, kephalaia), editors tacitly (and sometimes explicitly) presented the reader with an interpretation of the accompanying edition. An edition was thus the product of interpretation and, in turn, sought to shape subsequent interpretation.

Keywords:   authenticity, arrangement, paratext, bioi, prologue, hypothesis, kephalaia
