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.
Paul Maurice Clogan is Professor of English at the University of North Texas and a fellow of the American Academy in Rome. He is editor of The Medieval Archilleid of Statius and author of numerous articles on classical, medieval, and Renaissance literature.

Editorial Reviews

Medievalia et Humanistica: Beyond the Literary Ambit is particularly valuable to scholars whose work is of a similar literary focus. The authors' introduction of linguistic, artistic, historical, philosophical considerations brings new light to the interpretation of established texts. This volume ably demonstrates that literary scholars must extend their analysis of texts to include sources traditionally deemed nonliterary. The interdisciplinary nature of the essays provides an innovative model for future literary scholars. Beyond the Literary Ambit lives up to its name as a volume whose study of literary sources extends far beyond that alone, and will hopefully encourage a similarly creative study of future texts.
