Textkritiska noter som politiskt manifest : Jan Rutgers Variarum lectionum libri sex tillägnade Gustav II Adolf

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter

Abstract

A study of a book dedicated to Gustavus II Adolphus. The author, the Dutch humanist and diplomat (in Swedish service) Jan Rutgers (Janus Rutgersius), takes as his point of departure the fact that GVSTAVVS is an anagramme for AVGVSTVS. This enables him to praise the Swedish king by referring to the Roman emperor as a model for a great monarch.
