Title: Origins of Old Germanic Studies in the Low Countries
Written By: C. Dekker
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=145
Series Title: Brill's Studies in Intellectual History
Description:

This volume deals with the study of Old Germanic languages in the Low
Countries, in the seventeenth century. The work of the philologist and
lawyer Jan van Vliet (1622-1666) has been taken as a starting point for a
discussion of the intellectual background and philological methodology of
seventeenth-century investigations into the earliest recorded forms of the
Germanic languages.

Van Vliet's activities provide an extraordinary example of the earliest
attempts to approach Old Germanic languages from a comparative point of
view. The cosmopolitan tradition of philological studies in the Dutch
Republic as well as Van Vliet’s great admiration of Francis Junius
(1590–1677), the founding-father of Germanic philology, formed the basis
for his ideas about vernacular languages. His work allows us a unique
insight in the pioneering seventeenth-century studies in Germanic philology.
