This third issue of the Edgar Wind Journal takes as a departing point that cultural memory is
a result of ‘socialization and customs’ rather than a biological phenomenon and is
characterized by ‘its distance from the everyday’. Memory studies is an emerging yet
prolific scholarly field. As a ‘transdisciplinary phenomenon’, cultural memory may assume
different meanings. How does historical material survive through time? What do we mean
when we speak of the ‘survival of the classics’? Studying the reception of ancient, medieval
and Renaissance material is as important as studying the sources themselves.
