Chapter Summary

How many Latin occasional poems by humanists do we possess? In recent times some figures have at least been mentioned, and large amounts of poetry have been put on the Internet. It has been estimated that Swedish Libraries possess at least 12,000 separate editions of 17th century occasional poetry printed in Sweden. The holdings of the Dutch Royal Library in The Hague in this field seem rather meagre: the total amounts to just 648 poems (only two of them predating 1600), 21% of which (107) are in Latin. The results from sources, such as a Dutch bookeseller's catalogue, suggest that in separate publications wedding poetry is dominant, but that in collected poetry funerary poems may well have the upper hand. This chapter also presents a select bibliography of the journals and articles that occur in the book titled Latinitas Perennis Volume II: Appropriation and Latin Literature.
