On October 7, 1571, the Holy League Alliance of Spain, Venice, and the papacy achieved a decisive and unexpected victory over the Ottoman navy in the battle of Lepanto. Hundreds of poems in both Latin and the vernacular were circulated immediately after the battle. While studies have shown how the vernacular poetry of Lepanto informed distinct national identities, this paper will consider a counterbalancing phenomenon: why large numbers of Italian poets from diverse social contexts and regions wrote Latin poems about the battle. Their efforts to articulate the significance of the victory in Latin seem to stem from a renewed imperial vision to the shared inheritance of Rome to the continued complexities of empire.

Teofilo Ruiz presents “The Western Mediterranean and the World: From the Western Mediterranean to the Atlantic, Ca. 1300 – 1650″

Published by under Announcements

Friday February 7th at 4:30 in Classics 110–Co-sponsored by the Neubauer Collegium for culture and society and with the Medieval Studies Workshop.  Teofilo Ruiz, Professor of Spanish cultural history at UCLA, presents “The Western Mediterranean and the World: From the Western Mediterranean to the Atlantic,  Ca. 1300 – 1650″

Quoted from the Neubaur Collegium page: “In this lecture, I would like to explore the complex reasons which led to a shift from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic. I contend that the opening of the Atlantic for exploration and the encounter with the New World, although having an impact on Mediterranean societies, was not the sole determinant for the slow demise of the former sea as the center of European civilization.”  Light reception to follow.
