This essay considers philology from the standpoint of its recent reinvention as a theoretical discipline, reflecting in particular on how corporeal insistence and immortal significance compete for priority in the philo­logical study of texts. It takes as its guiding thread the episode in Martianus Capella's Marriage of Philology and Mercury in which Philology, touched by Immor­tality, vomits up books which are then appropriated by the Muses and the liberal arts for use in their teaching. This episode's combination of visceral physicality with the promise of immortality invites comparison with concerns current among philologists today, such as "material" and "queer" philology, the extent to which manuscript culture is legible, and the nature of textual production and reproduction. Reactions to this passage dating from the seventh to the twenty-first centuries show both how these concerns have been addressed historically, and how Martianus's portrayal of Philology is relevant to the theorization of philology today.
