Traductions vers le latin au XVIe siècle

Translations into Latin in the 16th Century
Edited by Martine Furno

The 16th century saw the emergence of vernaculars as languages of thought, and the parallel maintenance of Latin as a learned language of communication and thought. This twofold movement, one of conquest and the other of resistance, has often been studied from the point of view of the vernacular, in order to mark its progress both for the structuring of languages and for the ground gained on Latin in the field of fictions as well as arguments. The issue presented here, from a day of study held at the ENS de Lyon in November 2013, sought to question the facts with the opposite point of view, not in an approach of superiority or competition that would consider the place of the Latin language as resistance to a regrettable loss, an approach that would be sterile and ahistorical, but in terms of the gradual impact of this rise of the vernaculars on Latin throughout the century.
