Latin Versus Vernacular and Other Linguistic Disputes During the Italian Renaissance: A Study of the Fifteenth-Century Debates
2015 1-4955-0364-X
“This sweeping work, centred upon the Renaissance linguistic disputes and in particular, upon that of the Latin vs. the Vernacular, has the merit of enlarging upon a subject, which, though not yet much explored, is, nevertheless, extremely symptomatic and revealing of the intricate nexus of cultural, linguistic, philosophical and rhetorical issues, which characterize the linguistic ‘question’ of the second half of the sixteenth century, after the Prose della volgar lingua.”
