Published on: January 3, 2022

Monika Deželak Trojar, member of the literary institute at ZRC SAZU, has edited the volume Janez Ludvik Schönleben v luči novih raziskav (Johann Ludwig Schönleben in the Light of New Research). Examining a Baroque scholar like Schönleben, whose sphere of activity brought together a range of scholarly fields which seems unimaginably broad from today’s perspective, presented a great challenge. Fourteen scholars, all experts in their respective fields, thus embarked on a journey through this polymath’s life, joining forces to shed light on everything which could come together in a single great personage during the seventeenth century.
