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 43 showcases the interdisciplinary nature of the series with articles on death in Middle High German maeren (verse narratives), narrative technique (`involved narrating') in a fifth-century cento on a biblical theme (Eudocia's Homeric centos), philological methods and argumentative strategies in Poliziano's Miscellanea (a case study of the chapter `Elephanti'), and the treatment of time (based on Paul Ricoeur's techniques) in Jan Dlugosz's fifteenth-century historical and hagiographical works. Volume 43 also includes seven review notices that illustrate the journal's interdisciplinary scope.
