August 18-20, 2016 - Bruges Conference

   There were about thirty scholars from Moreana and Amici Thomae Mori at the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference in Bruges. The city of Bruges had been aptly chosen for this event which celebrated the 500th anniversary of both the first publication of Thomas More's Utopia and Erasmus' Novum Instrumentum.
   We organized 5 panels and a roundtable and were present in two other panels. Most of the sessions were devoted to Utopia and the roundtable gathered translators and specialists of the translation of Utopia into various modern languages.  

   On this occasion we were happy to meet for a Verre de l'Amitié, and honor Elizabeth McCutcheon whom we wanted to thank for allowing us to reprint a number of her essays in the December 2015 Moreana.

June 30, 2016 - Moreana 203-204 is published

This June 2016 issue offers a medley of papers ranging from the gravest to the lightest. Prof. Elliott Simon reveals More’s humor present in the midst of his most serious works, something that will not surprise the seasoned Morean scholar. A couple of studies on More’s theology precede two additional ones on Utopia. Régis Bar Closel acquaints us with his recent doctoral research on the representation of Sir Thomas More in sixteenth century fictional writings. Then Charles Clay Doyle invites us to consider the saying about the bag of snakes and eels, believed to be one of More’s and his father’s favorite jokes. You will then meet characters such as Teofilo Folengo and Jean le Sauvage, before discovering three choice Varia and two book reviews.

June 30, 2016 - Gazette Thomas More online

Renaissance of the Gazette Thomas More!
From 2017, the editorship of Moreana is going to be transferred to the CTMS of the University of Dallas for a first period of 6 years. The publication and the distribution (printed and on-line) will be carried out by the Edinburgh University Press (EUP) who will also manage the subscriptions of institutions to Moreana.
The Moreana editorial line will change and select a more restricted number of articles written by and for university academic specialists. The Gazette Thomas More intends to publish articles which cannot be published in Moreana anymore and happen to be a complement accessible to everyone.
As a consequence, your Gazette Thomas More presents two Books, one being your usual ‘newsletter’ and the new other ‘literary’.
Long live Germain’s Gazette Thomas More!
