The Glossa Ordinaria, like Rashi’s commentary, truncates, paraphrases, and rearranges it sources to give the impression of unified authorship. Because many early and late manuscripts of the Gloss have been preserved it is possible to trace its development and to compare early and late versions. This chapter shows how different versions of the Gloss on Genesis draw on and adapt its sources, primarily Jerome, Augustine, Alcuin and Isidore of Seville. The Gloss blends and arranges these comments so that when the reader encounters the marginal gloss together with the interlinear gloss the reader is struck by the way in which ancient, authoritative interpretation blends seamlessly with exegesis that arises directly from between the biblical lines.
