Chapter Summary

This chapter of this book Dynamics of Neo-Latin and the Vernacular provides the conclusion to the book. The overall Multilingualism has recently turned into a very fruitful topic for both Medieval and Early Modern literary studies. The book departs from the idea of exchange and mobility between both the Latin and vernacular field, the processes of which have been split up into two categories: 'language and poetics' on the micro-level and 'translation and transfer' on the macro-level. The main idea, now, is to use dynamics as a general interpretation of all transfer processes observable. As both Van Hooijdonck's and Hintzen's contributions clearly show, translatio transfer of texts (from one language to another) has always been intimately tied up with imitatio/aemulatio. The book aims to transcend cursory study of cases of Early Modern multilingualism by combining a historical perspective with a generalized interest in the dynamics of Neo-Latin and the vernacular.

Keywords: dynamics; Early Modern literary studies; multilingualism; Neo-Latin; vernacular
