Scholarly Progress?

Craig Kallendorf, review of Andreas Sirchich von Kis-Sira, Der Aeneis-Kommentar von Juan Luis de la Cerda (1612): kritische Edition, Übersetzung und Erschließung des ersten Buchs (Hildesheim: Georg Olms Verlag, 2020 = Noctes neolatinae, 36), in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2020.09.19
