Quadrato lapide: Ancient Architectural Terms in Dalmatian Renaissance Latin

When Renaissance humanists look at ancient architecture, they describe it using technical terms found in ancient authors. Such procedure is especially clear when humanists write in Latin. What are the terms they use, and which terms appear frequently? I will explore this in a digital corpus of Renaissance Latin writings in Dalmatia around 1500, following …

Updates to CroALa: new texts, new search interface

At the end of 2023, Croatiae auctores Latini, a digital collection of Latin texts connected with Croatia, received a (long overdue) update, 15 years after it was launched, ten years after the last update.

A letter to Aldo Manuzio from Dubrovnik, 1500 (?)

Index of saints in Croatian Latin school drama

Saints often appear as characters in Croatian Latin school drama (which is mostly Jesuit). Here is how we index them in our digital bibliography. (A more technical note here.) St Marianus, hermit and confessor of Berry, has until now received no identifier on the internet (though Fr Labbé wrote a page on him, available as …

Index personarum in CroALaBib

The bibliography branch of the Croatica et Tyrolensia project collects data on people and works connected with Croatian Latin. Following recommendations from the Cookbook of the SNAP:DRGN project, we have started putting our digital data online in a slightly more usable form (currently it exists in an XML database). The SNAP:DRGN Cookbook says: The first …

Implicitne godine u bibliografiji hrvatskih latinista

Nina Čengić, postdoktorandica koja se pridružila projektu Croatica et Tyrolensia početkom ove godine, izvještava o svome prvom zadatku. Određivanje vremena u kojem je neki tekst nastao važan je element filološkog istraživanja. Osim unutrašnjih elemenata koji nam otkrivaju kronološke podatke o djelu, postoje i vanjske odrednice koje ukazuju, često jednoznačno i vrlo jasno, kada je ono …
