PONTES X (23–25 September 2021) is dedicated to the reception of ancient literature in the natural sciences of the early modern period. In the age of the Scientific Revolution, the modern sciences emerged in the medium of a literature that was written primarily in Latin and drew, directly or via the Arab Tradition, on ancient classics like Hippocrates, Euclid, or Lucretius as sources or models.
Due to the pandemic crisis, many fellows of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies were not able to present their results in a final talk. As the regulations became more and more relaxed, we organised a workshop with all the former fellows on 6–8 August 2021. Please find the programme attached.
On 2nd and 5th of July, there will be a workshop organised on the history of the work ethic with the goal of discussing the precirculated draft chapters of a volume provisionally entitled “Rethinking the work ethic in early modern Europe” to be published with Palgrave in 2022. The workshop is hosted by the institute but will take place on Zoom.

The purpose of the conference was to investigate the presence of Japanese topics on the Jesuit stage in different European context. Participants came from ten countries and were debating for two days about the popularity of the subject in the early-modern drama. The sessions were chaired by the members of the “Japan on the Jesuit” project and Yasmin Haskell from Bristol, who kindly agreed to moderate a session.
