The reception of antiquity has been one major area of research in Renaissance studies, and in recent years it has moved towards the reappraisal of the linguistic aspects of this phenomenon, involving especially the issue of translation. The understanding of ancient sources was filtered not only by well-known translations and adaptations from Greek into Latin (often through Arabic), but also via more informal textual forms in the vernacular. From editions proper, to more experimental texts, including for instance dialogues, translating ancient sources often involved a creative linguistic approach as well as cultural adaptation, giving rise at the same time a new literary and philosophical vocabulary but also to a new frame of reference for interdisciplinary exchange at a pan-european level.
