ABSTRACT

As a case study for appreciating and evaluating the academic activities of Jiphyeonjeon (集賢殿) in the Joseon Dynasty, this paper traced the role and contributions of books, scholars, academic circles, and publishers in the transition periods from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, and from the Renaissance to the Modern era. For books, the paper investigated the transmission history of Lucretius’ De rerum naturs. As for scholars, the paper introduced Argyropoulos, an emigrée scholar from Byzantium who taught ancient Greek philosophy and translated Aristotle’s works into Latin. These are supplemented by a report on Aldus Manutius and his publishing company, which published editiones principes for Western classical texts.
