Lectori Salutem.

This year Humanistica Lovaniensia. Journal of Neo-Latin Studies will undergo some significant changes in response to the evolving scholarly landscape.

After a half-century of annually printed editions, first under the pioneering editorship of Jozef IJsewijn (1968-1998) and then under his successors Gilbert Tournoy (1999-2008) and Dirk Sacré (2009-2017), the incoming editors are transferring the journal to an online-only format. As an open access journal Humanistica Lovaniensia wishes to embrace the ideal of scholarship accessible to all and to reach out to a more extended readership.

All new issues will be downloadable for free from from humanistica.be. The website also displays the Table of Contents of the issues published before 2018, which are available in print at Leuven University Press and digitally on JSTOR.

The Spring 2018 issue (volume 67.1) will be published at the end of March, containing the following articles:

– Hester Schadee, A Tale of Two Languages. Latin, the Vernacular, and Leonardo Bruni’s Civic Humanism

– Tedd A. Wimperis, A Humanist Autograph Lost and Found. Mattia Lupi’sAnnales Geminianenses
