Byzantijnse boekepigrammen / metrische parateksten

Abstract

This article presents some theoretical reflexions on book epigrams, which are also
referred to as metrical paratexts. The article focuses on terminology and the classification
of book epigrams. Two different ways of classification are compared: classification
according to function (e.g. colophon verse, laudatory and dedicatory epigram) and classification
according to preservation (traditional, editorial and post-editorial paratexts).
Some of these categories, however, overlap, as will be shown by both Byzantine and
modem examples.
