Essays on Neo-Latin Literature in Honour of Monique Mund-Dopchie and Gilbert Tournoy
Edited by Jan Papy, Dirk Sacré
This collective volume has been dedicated to two distinguished scholars of Neo-Latin Studies. Both the rich variety of subjects dealt with and the international diversity of the contributors reflect the wide interests of the celebrated Neo-Latinists and the contemporary status of the discipline itself. In addition to studies of Petrarch, Lorenzo Valla, Erasmus, Vives, T omas More, Eobanus Hessus, Lipsius, Tycho Brahe, Jean de la Fontaine, and Jacob Cats, it also includes contributions on Renaissance commentaries and editions of classical authors such as Homer, Seneca, and Horace; on Neo-Latin novels, epistolography, and Renaissance rhetoric; on Latin translations from the vernacular and invectives against Napoleon; on the teaching of Latin in the nineteenth century; and on the present-day didactics of Neo-Latin.
