Abstract:

Latin as a Factor in the Creation of a Special Cultural Frontier Abstract The article analyses the role of Latin as a universal means of communication among intellectuals during the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries. The author argues that the main task of Neo-Latin studies in Ukraine is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary study of literature and the affirmation of the modern concept of the history of Ukrainian culture as an inherently synthetic process. As a result of even a superficial review of the Latin authors of the fifteenth to nineteenth centuries and the imagery of their works, we can learn much about the place and role of bourgeoisie and Polish noblemen in Ukrainian society of that time, as well as look with new eyes at the Cossacks, clergy, and peasants, reaching not only to previously unknown information but also, what is valuable to a philologist, to its refined wording. The representatives of a variety of professional circles, political views, and regions made their contribution to the Latin works in different genres during more than five hundred years – that is why the reader can now afford to choose works for every taste.

Key words: Baroque, Neo-Latin, Ukrainian-Polish frontier
