Chapter Summary

The decades after the fatal year 1536 are interpreted as a period of decline, or, at any rate, of stagnation. The centre of this revival, of this second florescence of Neo-Latin culture and literature, is in the North, in the County of Holland and to be precise, in Leiden. The representatives of this new flourishing period appear to consider the four decades that divide them from the era of Erasmus and Secundus as an interregnum. Of the three portraits of 'those who had formerly flourished in Holland, like Erasmus, Hadrianus Junius, Johannes Secundus', the middle one, that of Hadrianus Junius, has never been acquired. The Batavians of Ancient Times had always remained a free people.

Keywords: Erasmus; Hadrianus Junius; Holland; Leiden; Secundus
