Series:Transformationen der Antike 11
Aims and Scope
Inscriptions, coins, literary models and classical Latin are elements of ancient culture to which recourse was made in the Renaissance. To what extent did they, in the process, shape humanistic historiography? The authors discuss the question by investigating the consequences that using a particular language have on historical writings, and analyse how historiographical models were adapted to the contemporary environment. Finally, they ask how the humanists’ enthusiasm for ancient remains manifested itself in historiography.
