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 (?)

New Accession to CroALa in 2018: Jeronim Bartučević

Over the last two months, after a longer hiatus, some new texts have been added to the Croatiae auctores Latini collection. These accessions also tested the algorithms for updating the CTS-compatible version of the sources. In January we have finally included into CroALa two recently discovered elegies by Jeronim Bartučević, nicknamed Atticus, an esteemed humanist …

Scraping XML from CAMENA

CAMENA – Latin Texts of Early Modern Europe was a great project at the University of Mannheim. The project ended in 2011, making available many thousands of pages of Neo-Latin texts, not only by German authors. Some of the texts are available in a machine-readable XML form, though (as the project carefully warns) the texts …

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 …

Miscere quadrata rotundis

Can we compare two sets of neo-Latin texts? An experiment is underway. In our case, the sets are very unequal, and deliberately so: Croatiae auctores Latini (CroALa) has over 450 documents, and Latinitas Tyrolensis (LatTy) just 18 so far. There is now a page with a comparison of authors: about 190 in CroALa (of 1471 currently in …
