Book cover

In the 12th and 13th centuries, epistolography, or the art of writing letters, developed as a discipline in the nascent universities. This mode of literary production, which transcends purely administrative modalities, can help trace relationships and changes during this era, with the growth of cities with an active bourgeoisie. In Modernidad y Sociedad Civil (2022), Antonio Cortijo Ocaña presents 12 works of Boncompagno da Signa, a Florentine writer and professor in Bologna, an exemplar of this new rhetorical and literary model. These works, published here in Latin and Spanish translation, are placed in historical and literary context.
