"The Glossa Ordinaria is no ordinary book. David Salomon's introduction both captures the essentials of this remarkable work and helps us think about its place in old and new cultures of reading."
--James J. O'Donnell, Georgetown University
"Building on recent scholarship in many fields and on his own keen insights, Salomon's new study traces significant developments in the art and craft of reading, memory, and annotating texts--developments that situate the Glossa Ordinaria historically and underscore how extraordinary the ordinary gloss is."--John J. Contreni, Purdue University
"Modern scholars continue to puzzle over how the Glossa Ordinaria was actually read. This study of the Glossa Ordinaria as a medieval 'hypertext' makes an important contribution to this puzzle. This book will be of interest to scholars in the history of the material text and the reception of books from the Middle Ages to modernity."--E. Ann Matter, University of Pennsylvania
