Jana Niemeyer: Peter Luder’s Elegia ad Panphilam in critical edition
Peter Luder (ca. 1410/1420 – 1472), often considered today as an early German humanist, wrote his major poem Elegia ad Panphilam in 1460. He sent it to Frederick I, Count Palatine of the Rhine, in an attempt to gain financial support, claiming that the beloved puella in his poem represented Frederick himself. Later, Luder used the elegy in his lectures at the universities of Leipzig and Basel. This article presents a critical edition of the Elegia ad Panphilam, a Latin love elegy in the tradition of classical antiquity, supplemented with an apparatus of glosses and a commentary as well as a German translation.
