Thomas More, Renaissance & Humanism
MOREANA is an international, multilingual and non-confessional journal, which is published twice a year, in June and December. It was founded in 1963 by Abbé Germain Marc'hadour, and is read in nearly 40 countries today. Its main object is to encourage and promote academic research on the English humanist Thomas More.
The journal embraces all fields of research connected to Thomas More, Humanism and the Renaissance including History, Literature, Theology and any other relevant field capable of throwing light on More’s work and his time.
As a journal specializing in the Sixteenth Century, MOREANA also aims at promoting research concerning such humanists as Erasmus, Budé, Vives, Luther, Tyndale, Pico della Mirandola… With the aim of better understanding More’s time, the journal supports research in the history of the Church, the Reformation and the Counter-Reformation.
Moreover, MOREANA wishes to provide a forum in which diverse opinions can be expressed and disputed. This means welcoming a small number of articles whose interest lies in their relevance to current matters, often precipitated by breakthroughs in early modern fields of research.
Finally MOREANA attempts at providing an update on current research through its book reviews and the regular announcement of forthcoming conferences concerning Thomas More, Humanism and the Renaissance.
