The Introduction is the main part of this type of submission. These should be useful to both novice and expert audiences. It would be helpful to consider these introductions as possible assigned readings to undergraduate or graduate classes.
Provide a link to the edition of the text used in the introduction. If at all possible, this should be an open-access edition. In addition, provide any relevant notes on the edition and/or the original manuscript(s).
