Acta Societatis Morgensternianae

Acta Societatis Morgensternianae is a book series published in cooperation with the Department of Classical Studies of the University of Tartu, and Morgenstern Society. The latter was founded in 1999 with the aim of promoting the study of classical philology and related disciplines – ancient history and philosophy, classical archaeology, Medieval and Neo-Latin philology, Byzantine studies and the whole heritage and reception of antiquity in Estonia and beyond, connecting people who are engaged in these areas, and expanding international cooperation. The Society has been named after Johan Karl Simon Morgenstern (1770–1852), professor of rhetoric, aesthetics, Greek and Latin language and the antiquities at the University of Tartu, who was the founder of classical philology in Tartu.

Vol. 6–7. Hellenostephanos. Humanist Greek in Early Modern Europe: Learned Communities between Antiquity and Contemporary Culture. Edited by Janika Päll and Ivo Volt. Tartu: University of Tartu Press, 2018. 472 p. ISBN 978-9949-77-758-7.

The rebirth of Ancient Greek in Europe was promoted by Humanist education and ideas to such an extent that we can consider the Greek language as a formative element of Humanist culture. Next to Latin, the default common language, a Humanist has to know and use Greek, because he is not, cannot and will not be a barbarian: βάρβαρος οὐ πέλομαι, as Julius Caesar Scaliger claimed in his verses in 1600.

Wreaths (στέφανοι) have been the symbols of the cult of Muses from ancient times. After the love for Greek Muses had been revived by Renaissance Humanist poets and scholars, it has remained with us both in poetic activity and in scholarship. The Hellenostephanos volume presents a collection of papers by scholars who study Humanist Greek, aspiring towards another revival of Hellenism, and trying to avoid being barbarians.

The volume includes papers by Christian Gastgeber, Gita Bērziņa, Janika Päll, Charalampos Minaoglou, Erkki Sironen, Kaspar Kolk, Tua Korhonen, Johanna Akujärvi, Bartosz Awianowicz, Jean-Marie Flamand, Walther Ludwig, Alessandra Lukinovich, Martin Steinrück, Tomas Veteikis, Grigory Vorobyev, Vlado Rezar, Pieta van Beek, and Antoine Haaker.
