Chapter Summary

This section of the book titled The Kaleidoscopic Scholarship of Hadrianus Junius (1511-1575) presents the note on contributors. Hadrianus Junius is generally regarded as the single most important representative of Northern Dutch humanism between the deaths of Erasmus and Janus Secundus in 1536 and the establishment of Leiden University in 1575. Ever since Chris Heesakkers made this the central thesis of his landmark inaugural address of 1989, it has been widely accepted by the handful of scholars working on Junius, although histories of learning in the Northern Low Countries have given scant attention to this period. The book analyses Junius' most important works, some of which have never been studied before. It contextualises them in light of the tradition of humanism.

Keywords: Hadrianus Junius; Northern Dutch humanism
