Abstrakt We are putting into the hands of our Readers the double issue of Terminus: a Terminus changed thanks to its new visual design. The articles and sources presented in it cover nearly two millennia of European culture, yet they are all focused on what is broadly understood by the idea referred to as humanitas. For this reason, we have decided to open the issue with a discussion of humanist and philologist virtues with the Rector of the Jagiellonian University, Professor Franciszek Ziejka, Ph.D. The Dissertations and Essays chapter reflects the central thought of the latest Terminus, namely, the demonstration of the relation between antique and modern cultures. It encompasses articles on ancient rhetoric (Dionysius of Halicarnassus) and the – to a great extent unfamiliar – question of monosandaloi. Most articles focus on Renaissance culture: two dissertations are devoted to Erasmianism, and two to writers and works of writers born around the year 1505 (Mikołaj Rej, George Buchanan). This part of the issue is complemented by essays in Renaissance research methodology (new historicism) and reception of antiquity at the time of the Age of Reason. Our translations section includes selected major works (Philostratus, Pseudo-Plutarch, Palingenius and Aphtonios) translated into Polish for the first time: they are all provided with introductions and comments. Traditionally, the issue contains reviews and analyses of major new publications.
