Chapter Summary

For authorization strategies that instrumentalized the connection to religious powers, thus a rich tradition substrate was available to the Neo-Latin authors. The Neo-Latin poets look at the connection to the ancient inspiration gods of poetry as the basic, most effective and versatile figuration of self-presentation. The ritual intertextuality gesture is indispensable to sanction the poetic speech act of the Latin author. Jacob Locher Philomusus presents in the prologue poem to his second invective against the theologians Georg zingel the Furor Poeticus as the authoritative basis of all literary authorship at all, which he combines the concept indissolubly with Apollo and the Muses. The publication of the texts continues the academic ritual in medium, and the printed edition of the text was legitimized by reference to the ritual. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: ancient inspiration gods; authorization strategies; Furor Poeticus; Neo-Latin authors; ritual intertextuality gesture
