Polemisch geprägte Dialoge in lateinischer Sprache, dann zunehmend auch in den Volkssprachen gehören zweifellos zu den bevorzugten literarischen Ausdrucksformen, die das breite Spektrum zeitgenössischer Diskurse im Renaissance-Humanismus geprägt haben. Die Beiträgerinnen und Beiträger dieses Bandes eruieren aus latinistischer, romanistischer und anglistischer Perspektive charakteristische Formen und Funktionen polemischer Renaissancedialoge und zeichnen anhand prototypischer Beispiele ihre wesentliche Entwicklungslinien im Zeitraum zwischen 1350 und 1650 nach. Als wichtige Analysekategorien erweisen sich dabei das Verhältnis von Fiktionalität und Realität, von Oralität und Literarität, die Adressierung verschiedener Öffentlichkeiten und die zugrundeliegende Kommunikationssituation.

Despite common perceptions of the medieval world as mostly land-based or limited to individual courts, we can discover the development of the urbanization process already in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. The complexity of the matter requires a fully interdisciplinary approach, including art history, literature, urban geography, women's studies, social and economic history, religion, and philosophy. The contributions to this new volume build on extensive research on urban history but develop intriguingly new insight into living space, mental structures, and social conditions within medieval and early-modern cities.

In this book, Christopher Celenza provides an intellectual history of the Italian Renaissance during the long fifteenth century, from c.1350–1525. His book fills a bibliographic gap between Petrarch and Machiavelli and offers clear case studies of contemporary luminaries, including Leonardo Bruni, Poggio Bracciolini, Lorenzo Valla, Marsilio Ficino, Angelo Poliziano, and Pietro Bembo. Integrating sources in Italian and Latin, Celenza focuses on the linked issues of language and philosophy. He also examines the conditions in which Renaissance intellectuals operated in an era before the invention of printing, analyzing reading strategies and showing how texts were consulted, and how new ideas were generated as a result of conversations, both oral and epistolary. The result is a volume that offers a new view on both the history of philosophy and Italian Renaissance intellectual life. It will serve as a key resource for students and scholars of early modern Italian humanism and culture.

But you just can't offend people like that! Well, we don't expect thin-skinned moralists or religionists, or even political right-leaners to enjoy these limericks. But that leaves a lot of us to savor some good-humored swipes at dominant figures and mores. Here are some versified musings by one who's been around the block, and is ready to unburden himself of some residue of his prejudices, passions, and jaundiced observations. He'd love to think that this collection might prod others to enlist whimsical measures to share theirs.

A cartographical anthology navigating the uncharted waters that ran between two oracles just before they fell, Murder Starboard is a nautical reflection in the aqueducts of time leading up to the turn of the century. Below its surface lurks vivid, fathomed images of heaven, hell and the maelstroms we frantically tread in between. The collection serves as a metrical lighthouse, standing unabashedly tall and proud amidst the darkened ripples of a looming Y2K tsunami - a dactylic buoy bobbing determinately in a sea of uncertainty ... before the wave of smartphones and social media crashed down and drowned us all.
