Chapter Summary

Melville's period of exile and banishment marks a significant chapter in his development as a humanist and in the unfolding of the Renaissance in Scotland. His imprisonment and subsequent banishment, brought an unceremonious end to his academic, literary, and ecclesiastical labors in Scotland. However, its unintended consequence was to remove him from the provincial confines of St Andrews and to place him in a broader intellectual arena where he might cultivate new humanist contacts and develop further his network of scholars committed to the studia humanitatis of the Renaissance. Although Melville appears to have died in relative obscurity at Sedan with his place of burial unknown, it seems fitting that he lived out the remainder of his days in that country which many years before had so profoundly shaped and determined his own intellectual and cultural formation.
