The Commenta Bernensia, also known as the Bern scholia, are commentaries or marginal notes in a 10th-century manuscript, Cod. 370, preserved in the Burgerbibliothek of Bern, Switzerland. The commentaries relate to classical Latin texts, including Lucan's De Bello Civili, and Vergil's Eclogues and Georgics (see Filargirius). The commentary expands on a reference of Lucan's to the druidic human sacrifice to Teutates (Mercury), Esus (Mars) and Taranis (Jupiter). It states that victims dedicated to Teutates were drowned, those dedicated to Esus were hanged and those to Taranis were burned.

dbo:abstract
  • Berner Lukan-Scholien nennt man die im 4. Jahrhundert entstandenen anonymen Scholien (erklärenden Zusätze) zum Werk des römischen Dichters Marcus Annaeus Lucanus. Der Verfasser der Scholien ist unbekannt; überliefert sind sie in den Cod. 45 (unvollständig) und Cod. 370, beide aus dem 10. Jahrhundert, der Burgerbibliothek Bern, aus denen sie 1869 der Philologe und Religionswissenschafter Hermann Usener edierte. Besonders Lucans' zehnbändiges Werk De bello civili (auch Pharsalia) wird in den Scholien ausführlich kommentiert. Im 8. und 9. Jahrhundert wurden von weiteren anonymen Kommentatoren Zusätze verfasst. Die wegen der verschiedenen Autoren mehrmals differierenden Angaben sind auch für die moderne Forschung oft unlösbar. (de)
