Item description for Latinitas Perennis: Volume I: The Continuity of Latin Literature (Brill's Studies in Intellectual History) by Jan Papy...
This volume deals with the question of the continuity of Latin literature throughout its history. For the first time, contributions are brought together from each of the three fields within the studies of Latin literature: Classical, Medieval and Neo-Latin, reflecting on problems such as the transmission of the Latin heritage, the creation and perpetuation of a classical normativeness and the reactions against it.
The book is divided into three parts, corresponding to the theoretical principle of organic development: "Beginnings?", "Perfections?", "Transitions?", thus questioning the validity of a similar evolutionistic model. Because of the numerous points of contact between Latin and the national literatures, the volume is of particular relevance for the studies of the European literary history.
Contributors include: Davide Canfora, Perrine Galand-Hallyn, Sander Goldberg, Thomas Haye, Marc van der Poel, Michael Roberts, Francesco Stella, Wim Verbaal, Gregor Vogt-Spira, and Jan Ziolkowski.
