Since its founding in 1943, Medievalia et Humanistica has won worldwide recognition as the first scholarly publication in America to devote itself entirely to medieval and Renaissance studies. Since 1970, a new series, sponsored by the Modern Language Association of America and edited by an international board of distinguished scholars and critics, has published interdisciplinary articles. In yearly hardcover volumes, the new series publishes significant scholarship, criticism, and reviews treating all facets of medieval and Renaissance culture: history, art, literature, music, science, law, economics, and philosophy.
Volume 46 is a special issue presenting the results of an international conference on the Latin Josephus, which was held at the University of Bochum, Germany, in September 2019. It comprises six articles on a wide variety of aspects of the Latin Josephus tradition and a review of a recently published edition of Josephus’s De Bello Iudaico, book 1.
Reinhold F. Glei and Maik Goth are researchers at the Latin Philology Institute and at the English Department of Ruhr-Universität Bochum. Christoph Schülke is student assistant at Ruhr-Universität Bochum.
