      Stemmatology is the discipline that attempts to reconstruct the
      transmission of a text on the basis of relations between the various
      surviving manuscripts. The object of this volume is the evaluation of
      the most recent methods and techniques in the field of stemmatology, as
      well as the development of new ones. The book is largely
      interdisciplinary in character: it contains contributions from scholars
      from classical, historical, biblical, medieval and modern language
      studies, as well as from mathematical and computer scientists and
      biologists. The contributions in the book have been divided into two
      sections. The first section deals with various stemmatological methods
      and techniques. The second section focuses more specifically on the
      various problems concerning textual variation.

      An earlier volume on Studies in Stemmatology was published in 1996 and
      opened the most actual state of the art in stemmatology to a broad
      audience. That first volume was very well received by stemmatologists
      and also gave an impulse to new research, as several articles in the
      current volume clearly illustrate.
