Project Announcement: Neo-Latin Poetry in English Manuscript Verse Miscellanies, c. 1550-1700.

The SNLS would like to draw your attention to the website for Dr Victoria Moul’s Leverhulme-funded research project: Neo-Latin Poetry in English Manuscript Verse Miscellanies, c. 1550-1700.

https://latinmanuscriptverse.co.uk

From the website:

"This project aims to survey for the first time the enormous quantity of neo-Latin verse preserved in early modern English manuscript sources. We hope to restore to scholarly visibility the ‘Latin dimension’ of the bilingual literary culture of sixteenth and seventeenth century England: a period in which Latin (not English) was an international language, and in which not only the reading but also the writing of Latin verse was a significant element in all secondary education."

The project is funded by the Leverhulme Trust over four years (2017-2021). The project lead and principal investigator is Dr Victoria Moul, Senior Lecturer in Latin Language and Literature at King’s College London.
