n°5 — Mythographical encyclopaedias

A envoyer avant le 01.10.2021

Far beyond the naturalist tradition, the Renaissance is characterised by a blooming of encyclopaedic texts in all fields. Such scholarly sums, often based on recent layers of ancient knowledge, offer a detailed, sometimes commented, and often critical overview of knowledge. In this respect, mythological tradition is one of the sensitive bridges between ancient culture and Christian dogma during Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and constitutes a favourable ground for gathering a set of profound stories and patterns on man, the world, God and history. This issue will focus on extensive works of mythographic type that convey multifaceted knowledge, from Antiquity to the Renaissance: Fabulae of Pseudo-Hyginus or Fulgence, Commentaries by Servius, Ovid moralized, the Fabularius of Conrad de Mure, the Genealogy of the gods by Boccaccio’s Genealogia Deorum Gentilium, manuscripts such as the "mythographers of the Vatican", the Violarium of Pseudo-Eudocia...

Contributions for this issue sent to the editorial staff of RursuSpicae will be peer-reviewed.
