Acta Conventus Neo-Latini Monasteriensis

Proceedings of the Fifteenth International Congress of Neo-Latin Studies (Münster 2012)

Series:

Since 1971, the International Congress for Neo-Latin Studies has been organised every three years in various cities in Europe and North America. In August 2012, Münster in Germany was the venue of the fifteenth Neo-Latin conference, held by the International Association for Neo-Latin Studies. The proceedings of the Münster conference have been collected in this volume under the motto „ Litterae neolatinae, sedes et quasi domicilia rerum religiosarum et politicarum – Religion and Politics in Neo-Latin Literature”. Forty-five individual and five plenary papers spanning the period from the Renaissance to the present offer a variety of themes covering a range of genres such as history, literature, philology, art history, and religion. The contributions will be of relevance not only for scholarly readers, but also for an interested non-professional audience.

Review Quote

“Whoever is interested in the vast field of Neo-Latin literature will find a rich compendium of subjects and of representative interpretative methods in the volume at hand. […] the Acta of the IANLS conference at Münster surely deserve a place in all major academic libraries.”
Christoph Pieper, Leiden University. In: Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 70, No. 1 (Spring 2017), pp. 252-254.
