Portuguese Humanism and the Republic of Letters
This volume focuses on the interdisciplinary investigation of Portuguese humanism, especially as a noteworthy player in the international network of early modern scholars, writers and intellectuals. During the Renaissance, Portugal became a centre for the dissemination of information concerning the new geographical and cultural horizons opened up by voyages of discovery, as well as a meeting place for humanist scholars and intellectuals coming from elsewhere in Europe. Papers in this volume situate Portuguese scholarship within the international humanistic network and examine its connection to other aspects of contemporary cultural production.
