Unlike most theologians of his age, Martin Bucer proved to be farsighted with respect to European affairs: In addition to his contacts within Alsace and Germany he established relations with almost every European country. It was his ecumenical attitude that always led him to mediate between the parties in the religious battles of his time. His deep commitment to the goal of reaching agreement can be traced in all his activities, works and letters.
Since the first editor, Jean Rott (Strasbourg), died in 1998, Bucer's correspondence has been edited in Erlangen. This academic edition of source material provides future research with a broad basis for significant aspects of Reformation history about which very little is known. Volume VI covers the period from May to October 1531.


The Christian monumental historic-heroic epic Davidiad is the masterpiece of the prolific Croat Humanist Marko Marulić (Marcus Marulus, 1450-1524). The poem, comprising 6765 Latin hexameters, and divided into 14 books, was never published, and eventually even thought to be lost. Marulić's autograph resurfaced in the Biblioteca Nazionale of Turin, although it had been heavily damaged during the huge fire in January 1904. For the present edition the author has collated the original manuscript in Turin, made additional corrections, adopting the suggestions of Veljko Gortan, and reduced his first edition (1957, Mérida) to an absolutely necessary minimum. He has also enclosed a brief Vita Maruli, written by Marulić's contemporary Latin poet of Split, Franjo Božičević (Franciscus Natalis, 1469-1542).

Mediae Latinitatis Lexicon Minus (2 vols.)

Lexique latin médiéval - Medieval Latin Dictionary - Mittellateinisches Wörterbuch

Niermeyer and van de Kieft

Niermeyer's Mediae Latinitatis Lexicon Minus is a highly practical lexicon, providing researchers, teaching staff and students in the field of Medieval History with concise, essential information.
This new edition is still the “compendious lexicon for rapid information” envisaged by Niermeyer, but current entries and definitions have been revised and new entries have been added. Furthermore, the dictionary is now enhanced with German definitions and therefore provides French, English and German translations for every entry of a Medieval Latin concept. All entries are contextualized with relevant text passages.
In view of the new entries and additional German definitions, the new edition is bound into two durable hardback volumes.
The Niermeyer Lexicon Minus has proved to be invaluable to medievalists for almost 50 years and is an indispensable working tool for academic libraries. An online version is also available: see for details

The revised Lexicon is published simultaneously by Brill, Leiden and Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft (WBG), Darmstadt (WBG only distributes to its members).

When the volume Poetae Tres Elegantissimi was produced at Paris in 1582, the poets included were Joannes Secundus, Michelle Marullo and Girolamo Angeriano, represented by his best-known work, the Eropaegnion, orginally published in Florence in 1512, which had come to enjoy particular popularity in France and had exercised a considerable influence on vernacular literature there. All 199 poems (with the few alternative versions) are assembled from the various sixteenth century editions in a newly edited Latin text. Each poem translated into English prose; substantial commentary.
