Editing Renaissance Printed Texts in Latin: A Practitioner’s Guide
Thursday 23 February 2023: 5.30 – 7.00pm: in person at the Warburg Institute, and online via Zoom.
Public lecture by Dr Matthias Roick (Institute of Philosophy and Sociology at the Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw)
The lecture will explore how early modern academic texts, including commentaries and dissertations, treated the topic of friendship. Among other texts, Dr Roick will analyse Hieronymus Wolf’s commentary on Cicero’s De amicitia and explore how Wolf employed the commentary to reflect on his personal situation in post-reformation Augsburg. Many of the materials discussed in the lecture will be analysed in further depth with the students during the next day’s workshop.
