Chapter Summary

This index section presents the list of names and terms that occur in this book titled Latinitas Perennis. The book is the second volume in a series of three treating the characteristics of Latin literature throughout the ages. The aim is to open up discussion across the traditional boundaries of Latin studies. Instead of reading the process of appropriation in terms of 'sources' or 'models', the dynamics involved are better understood using more flexible categories such as creative reception, polyphony and dialogue. In every phase of its evolution, in Antiquity, the Middle Ages or (Early) Modern times, Latin literature had to face a double challenge, one from the past, and one from the present: although the models and heritage of the past always remained normative, contemporary demands had to be met too.

Keywords: Antiquity; Latin literature
