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 39 showcases the interdisciplinary nature of the series with five articles on topics ranging from Christian-Jewish controversies, the Muses, and medieval comedy. It features a final essay from Medievalia et Humanistica's longtime editor Paul Maurice Clogan. Volume 39 also includes seven review notices.
