Abstract

The role of Christian institutions, writers and saints in the active suppression and destruction of books in Late Antiquity has received surprisingly little consideration. The author argues that texts and ideas from materialistic philosophical traditions were vulnerable to destruction, censorship or suppression through prohibition of the copying of manuscripts. This includes texts which were to become the basis for modern philosophy and science.

Abstract

Las cartas aquí reunidas se caracterizan por su unidad temática – discutir los méritos o insufribles vicios de la obra poética de Luis de Góngora – sino que forman un conjunto autónomo dentro de la dilatada querelle en torno a la obra de Góngora. Francisco Cascales lanzó la polémica en una carta humorística, con fórmulas memorables como la que hace del poeta un ángel de luz convertido en ángel de tinieblas. Esto desde Murcia, muy lejos de Madrid, donde Góngora transcurría entonces sus últimos y amargos años, aureolado de una gloria y de escándalo cuyos ecos se oían en toda la península.Quienes participan en esta controversia son son personajes de segunda fila de la República de las letras españolas, asentados en el Sur de España: respectivamente en Murcia para Cascales, donde ejerció como catedrático de Retórica; en Andújar (provincia de Jaén) para Villar, donde fue vicario y juez eclesiástico; y en Loja (provincia de Granada) para Angulo y Pulgar, un hombre acomodado, de linaje noble. El fuego y la pasión con los cuales debaten de la poesía gongorina les llevan a movilizar el sarcasmo más burlón (Cascales) o bien argumentaciones matizadas e ingeniosas, en defensa de su admirado Góngora (Villar y Angulo y Pulgar). La cuestión central es la del estatuto de la lengua moderna en relación con el latín, pero también el uso y los límites de la erudición. Los editores, mediante las notas y el estudio preliminar, restituyen cuidadosamente las tres figuras, las circunstancias del intercambio y las sutilezas de los textos.

Abstract

Polemik in den Schriften Melchior Hoffmans. Inszenierungen rhetorischer Streitkultur in der Reformationszeit” is a study of pamphlets written as a reaction to, and attempt for, expansion of the Lutheran and Zwinglian Reformation. Melchior Hoffman’s work has, so far, almost solely been investigated by historians of religion and thus focused merely on religious topics and argumentation, and rather seldomly on the literary aspects of his pamphlets – such as rhetorics, argumentation strategies and text compilation. In order to close this gap of research on Melchior Hoffman and – in the sense of a New Historicism approach – give him as a non-canonical author more attention, this book focuses on the literary qualities of the texts. It is thus the first full-length study on Melchior Hoffman by a literary scholar. Not only has little been written on Melchior Hoffman, but also about lay writers in the Reformation at all. Thus, the book delivers new perspectives within the field of Reformation pamphlet writers. Theoretical significance is an integral part of the study, with a focus on developing a new theoretical concept for analyzing polemic texts. The innovative approach combines post-modern theories like (constructivist) Cultural Studies, and Performativity concepts with Communication Analyses and Classical Rhetorics. By doing so, it provides a unique approach to texts from the 16th century, which can easily and reasonably be applied to polemical texts of the 21st century as well as to even older texts than Hoffman’s. The book has been written in the research field of German Literature, but will be of great interest for both literary scholars and historians (of religion or culture).
