Classical myth in the Jesuit theatre

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research grant will be used to investigate the presence of the classical myth in the Jesuit theatre. Top priority will be given to the edition published in Antwerp in 1634 which is one of the first attempts of 'anthology' by the Company of Jesus. A census will also be carried out on the interest in mythology found in the comment on Seneca's tragedies by the Jesuit Martin Antonio Delrio who published the first editions first in Antwerp (1576) and then in Syntagma tragoediae latinae in tres partes distinctum (1593 and 1594). The research could then be extended to the literary culture of the Jesuits by discovering if manuals, treaties or catalogues of mythological stories still exist in the Bibliotheca Major of the Collegio Romano

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
