Chapter Summary

The wide-ranging and varied cultural production of Vives, De Disciplinis, far from appearing dispersive, demonstrates to the contrary a closely- woven web of references that stimulate the reader to embark on a fascinating intertextual journey which seems to reflect the classical ideal of an ?encyclopedic? knowledge re-launched on a wider scale, in the age of humanism. A part of medieval culture and a large portion of modern knowledge are structured in an unequivocally ?encyclopedic? style. This chapter focuses on position of De disciplinis in the framework of Renaissance encyclopedism, taking into account that this finds expression in multiple forms, from poetic encyclopedias to systematic disciplinary organizations. The basic filter, in short, is that of humanism, mediated in all its forms, but undoubtedly also capable of imprinting itself on the first centuries of the modern era.
