Michael Jean has been awarded a Mellon Fellowship at the Vatican Film Library in St. Louis to research Vatican manuscripts of Pomponio Leto's commentary on Ovid's Fasti.  Leto was an important humanist whose work on Ovid seems to be neglected. The Vatican Film Library  holds reproductions of about 80% of Vatican manuscripts and also has a rich store of catalogues and arcane materials.
