Chapter Summary

This chapter investigates the relationship between Bonaventura Vulcanius and Justus Lipsius, both men who were celebrated as founders of the young Leiden University because of their scholarly reputation and of their dedication as administrators. On 1 February 1578, Philip Marnix of St Aldegonde passed through Leiden on his way to Groningen. He was accompanied by Bonaventura Vulcanius, a man with an obvious knack for languages, who in December 1577 had become secretary of Marnix in Antwerp and almost at the same time was appointed head of the Latin School in that city. The catalogue of Vulcanius library also sheds an interesting light on the relation between the two scholars.

Keywords: Bonaventura Vulcanius; Groningen; Justus Lipsius; Leiden University; St Aldegonde
