Abstract

Introduction: The Science of the Information discusses the access and use of Information. Among these discussions, we consider that Bibliography represents one of the foundations, being considered a meta- disciplin, for the treatment of documents. When it is observed from a perspective of “bibliographical gesture”, we may perceive that its history is well previous to the invention of the impression of books, being able to be individualized in its main elements in one work from the 6th century, the De Institutione Divinaruam Litterarum, written by Cassiodorus (c. 490-c. 584). Objectives: 1) Historically reconstitute the recurrence of informational problems, facing them from an intellectual point of view, through an historical source, the De Institutione Divinarum Litterarum, of Bibliographical nature. 2) Study the “bibliographical gesture” carried through by Cassiodoro when of the collapse of the structures of the Delayed Antiquity. 3) Observe the trajectory of a reorganization of knowledge its heathen and Christian registers in search of new paths for knowledge considered not only legitimate, as well as structural for society, offering a small sample of this source, one of the first dedicated to the medieval knowledge, articulated as manual of instruction, map of authors and their use and place in the hierarchy of knowledge. 4) Discuss some aspects of Cassiodorus’ work, device of selection, organization and informational mediation. Methodology: Revision of literature and reading of sources. Results: First attempt of systematization of Fathers’ literature (to which the same Cassiodorus gave a notable contribution, composing a large Commentary to the Psalms), the nine chapters of the De Institutione Divinarum Litterarum is a book made of books, through the canonic authors of religious literature, a list of works considered essential in the scaling of divine knowledge, having its presence justified by the creation of a program of Christian education and its materiality largely described. The text is completed by commentaries dedicated to writing and translation, delineated in few and clear lines. Conclusions: The De Institutione Divinarum Litterarum it is a text that discloses the multiple facets of a device of manuscript culture, worried about its physical presence in the library and about the philosophical dimension of the knowledge, explaining the descriptive and semantic aspects of the documents and of knowledge, contributing, in terms of a history that becomes anthropological, in the measure in which it studies the bibliographical gesture, to the conceptual dimensions of bibliographical contemporaries disciplines.
