The Transnational Impact of Latin Theatre from the Early Modern Netherlands


We are creating a database that will serve as a virtual laboratory for the study of Neo-Latin and vernacular drama from the early modern period. will be made available in open access. It will contain a large number of plays in both Neo-Latin and vernacular languages, from both the Netherlands and other countries. We will provide metadata such as author, title, paratexts, structure, printings, performances, and provenances. We wish to make the enormous variety and richness of early modern drama more accessible, and we also hope that the database will enable more digital research into the circulation of subjects and themes and into the exchange between Neo-Latin and vernacular playwrights.

If you want more information or wish to collaborate with us on filling these digital bookshelves, please contact one of our team members.
