Chapter Summary

This chapter is in German and contains a brief English abstract which deals with the Descriptio Regni Japoniae in the literary tradition of European 'descriptiones'. Bernhard Varenius' book on Japan is a literary example of a geographia specialis. For the description of Japan, the traditionally open literary form is used, in which the initial required dates and information are followed by various memorabilia about the properties of a country (more or less as listed in the 10 points under the affectiones humanae). The author's remarks in the chapter are those of a philologist and might be entitled "On rereading Varenius" or "Descriptio Regni Japoniae reconsidered".

Keywords:Bernhard Varenius; Descriptio Regni Japoniae; European 'descriptiones'; literary tradition
