For over forty years now, the proceedings of the IANLS congresses have served as invaluable resources for what is being done in the field of Neo-Latin studies. This one, handsomely produced by Brill, the new publisher, joins its predecessors, even as work begins on the volume from the Vienna congress that just took place.
