The study of Latin literature has generally focused on one of three periods: Roman Antiquity, the high Middle Ages, or the Golden Age of Humanism. The three-volume series beginning here starts a new perspective on Latin literature as an ever-evolving but single continuum throughout its two millennia of use in Western Europe. The 10 papers are from an April 2005 conference in Brussels. Only names are indexed. The other two volumes, Appropriation by Latin Literature and The Property of Latin Literature are projected to appear in 2008 and 2010. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

This volume unites, for the first time, contributions from the three fields of Latin literature: Classical, Medieval and Neo-Latin, reflecting on its continuity. It’s particular interest for the studies of European literary history lies in the interactions between Latin and the national literatures.
