Summary/Abstract: This paper offers an analysis of literary commentaries printed in one of the most interesting editions of Andrea Alciato’s Emblemata – the 1583 edition, which was annotated by Claude Mignault (1536–1606), scholar-humanist and professor of law at the University of Paris. Commentary – while remaining outside the genre structure of an emblem – was an integral part of the philological endeavor which significantly broadened the reception of Alciato’s Emblemata. This article shows the historical context of annotated editions of the Italian scholar’s work as well as the horizon of erudition, the scope and architectonics of Claude Mignault’s annotations.
