Resumen (otros idiomas)

A suitable space to analyse the concepts of author and authorship, the florilegium arises around the notion of auctoritas because it is a selection and compilation of passages of diverse authors or only of one author. In addition, the compilator is at the same time auctor of the florilegium, considering that he modifies the selected texts according to his purposes. The Floresta de philosophos is a Castilian florilegium, which is in debt with classical authors, mainly with Seneca, but also with medieval authors, as Boethius or St. Bernard. One of its particularities is the omission of the non-classical, intermediary sources, i.e., Nicolas Trevet in the case of Boethius or Leonardo Bruni in the case of Plato, for instance. In this work we will attend to the concepts or auctor and auctoritas in the Floresta. Moreover, we will present de real sources -hidden or not- of this work.
