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.
Robert Seidel, member of the LBI’s academic advisory board, is organising a conference and a volume of the Intersections series on 'Funerary Inscriptions in Early Modern Europe' in Frankfurt am Main in late August or early September 2021.
Please, have a look at the attached Call.
Cancelled: Unfortunately, due to the current situation, we had to cancel the conference, which will be postponed to next year.
