Olof Rudbeck der Jüngere und die Sprachen des Nordens
Zwischen Gotizismus und Orthodoxie
[Olof Rudbeck the Younger and the languages of the North: Between Gothicism and Orthodoxy]
Series:Transformationen der Antike 57
Aims and Scope
The etymological speculations of Olof Rudbeck the Younger (1660–1740) lead to a synthesis of Gothicist and Orthodox understandings of language. This volume investigates the precise nature of the kinship between languages that he postulated. Rudbeck’s unique methodology allowed him to accomplish a linguistic transformation not only of Biblical antiquity, but also of the Swedish language.
