Quadrato lapide: Ancient Architectural Terms in Dalmatian Renaissance Latin

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 …
