Jozef IJsewijn

Humanism in the Low Countries
Edited by Gilbert Tournoy

In English, Latin, French, and Italian.

This book contains twenty-one essays written by the late Professor Jozef IJsewijn during the period 1966–1996. All essays were selected by his pupil Professor Gilbert Tournoy, who collaborated with him from the foundation of the Seminarium Philologiae Humanisticae in 1966 until his untimely death in 1998. IJewijn's essays are now published in one volume in homage to the most brilliant scholar in the field of Neo-Latin Studies of the twentieth century.

A number of essays focus on the life and/or work of a single humanist from the Netherlands, others have a more general nature and deal with the very beginning and the later blossoming of Neo-Latin literature in the Low Countries or with the relationship between humanism in the Low Countries and in other European countries.
