Abstract [en]

When studying Neo-Latin texts, scholars often run the risk of being occupied with only one task, the identification of classical models. I will show the necessity of a wide reading of Neo-Latin literature in order to reveal intertextual bonds to contemporary or earlier early modern authors. This will be demonstrated through the analysis of a poem by the Danish writer Jacob Thode. Entitled Laudes, quibus PAX … suum Ministrum … Dn. Paulum Löwenörn … festo Pacis die 14 Novembris 1720, prosecuta est, the work celebrates the peace treaty entered into by Denmark and Sweden at the final stage of the Great Northern war. Constructed as a concillium deorum, it is modeled upon Claudian’s In Rufinum. A closer look at the poem reveals that Thode is also influenced by other Neo-Latin poets, both fellow countrymen and foreign authors, and thus places him in a generic tradition of his own time.
