The poetry of Virgil occupied a central position in the intellectual, artistic, and political lives of the Renaissance. This volume brings together studies by scholars from a range of academic disciplines, covering the crucial areas of education and court culture, the visual arts, music history, philosophy, and Neo-Latin and vernacular literature. In addition to offering new perspectives on some familiar texts and artifacts, the essays collected here present a wealth of material that has received little or no previous scholarly attention.
