This series addresses the understanding of the Early Modern Period (broadly defined) vis-à-vis educational thought. The writings of prominent intellectuals regarding issues of educational theory, addressed to princes, kings, popes and emperors throughout this period, were highly influential. They exerted significant influence on educational institutions and practices over the centuries, and they are highly revealing of shifts in values, anthropology, methodology, the natural sciences, and culture. Such shifts have shaped our “modern” vision of the world. Few of these writings have received appropriate attention, and, more importantly, adequate consideration given the period's complexity.
Therefore, the series will include studies on historical accounts of how educational institutions should function in theory, rather than those which focus primarily on how educational institutions functioned in practice. The result will amount a novel library of commented editions and English translations of the milestones of early modern educational theory as well as broad surveys tracing the development of educational thought in Europe and wherever these ideas were influential.

Leonardo Studies establishes a forward-thinking approach to a traditional topic. The series seeks to engage with theoretical issues using a variety of methodological approaches. It also includes innovative viewpoints on the more typical problems of translation, influences, critical editions, and cultural transmission. The aim of the series is to offer diverse contributions on Leonardo da Vinci in subjects such as engineering, architecture, anatomy, and astronomy, but also painting, drawing, and sculpture, focusing on only the most recent discoveries by scholars.

Given the expansive nature of Leonardo’s undertakings, volumes draw from collaborations by scholars in the disciplines of literature, history, art history, biology, geology, intellectual history, history of the book, architecture, and others fields. We support the methodologies employed by these diverse fields and encourage scholars participating in the seminars to actively explore new ways of looking at Leonardo.

This peer-reviewed book series is dedicated to innovative and transdisciplinary scholarly work on visualities and material cultures from the end of antiquity to the Renaissance. Since the editors desire to puncture the European, even Western European boundaries habitually drawn around things medieval, the geographical and chronological parameters are loose, making it possible to examine the migration of symbols, objects and practices across global geographies and religious/spiritual traditions, and between the Middle Ages and modern medievalism. The series aims to build a bridge between the history of art and other fields in medieval studies: literary theory, manuscript studies, theology/religious studies, cultural anthropology, archaeology and material culture, gender studies. It seeks work with impact beyond disciplinary confines and established methodological paths.
Formats include monographs, essay collections, texts and translations.
