Medieval Latin is the language
that held Europe together culturally in the fields of religion, law,
literature, philosophy, andd science. Thus, the extremely vast and still
little explored Medieval Latin production comes to represent the first
act of modern European culture, an indispensable antecedent for those
who seek the roots of our present.
SPOLIA's medieval section will contain useful information both for those
who want to approach this sector of research and for those who wish
to keep abreast of new developments. In particular, we will report on
activities concerning Medieval Latin Literature and Medieval and Humanistic
Philology which will be held in the Universities and in the cultural
institutes of Rome: courses, conferences, ongoing research (theses,
doctoral dissertations, recent publications); on national and international
conferences; on particularly significative books and articles around
which it might be profitable to begin debates on problems and methods
of this discipline.
