Overview

Since its founding in 1943, Medievalia et Humanistica has won worldwide recognition as the first scholarly publication in America to devote itself entirely to medieval and Renaissance studies. Since 1970, a new series, sponsored by the Modern Language Association of America and edited by an international board of distinguished scholars and critics, has published interdisciplinary articles. In yearly hardcover volumes, the new series publishes significant scholarship, criticism, and reviews treating all facets of medieval and Renaissance culture: history, art, literature, music, science, law, economics, and philosophy.

Volume 38 showcases a broad range of medieval scholarship, including five original articles that explore French, English, Italian, and Latin subjects. The volume also features one review article and seven review notices that illustrate the volume’s interdisciplinary scope.

Meet the Author

Reinhold F. Glei and Wolfgang Polleichtner are researchers at the Latin Philology Institute of Ruhr-Universität Bochum. Nina Tomaszewski is academic staff at Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

Paul Maurice Clogan, longstanding editor of Medievalia et Humanistica, passed away on July 29 this year. With the publication of volume 37 (2011) he had retired from many successful years of editorship. It was his extraordinary learnedness and devotion that made the journal internationally successful and highly reputed. For this, the scientific community is deeply indebted to him. We are greatly saddened by the loss of this exceptional scholar and will keep his memory in the highest esteem.
