Oxford University’s Paget Toynbee Fund has sponsored a number of significant initiatives on Dante in recent years, first a series of Lectures starting in the mid-1990s, and more recently a number of conferences. This volume gathers together some of the most important Paget Toynbee Lectures. Named after the great medieval scholar of the first half of the twentieth century, they were delivered by major Dante experts of our time, such as John Barnes, Peter Hawkins, Lino Leonardi, Emilio Pasquini, and the late Michelangelo Picone and Peter Armour. The topics range from Armour’s trilogy of lectures on the topics of exile, friendship and poverty in Dante to key questions such as Dante and Ovid, Dante and history, and Dante and evil.
