Personal profile

Research interests

William studies the history of the mentality shift towards the mountain that took place in the Late Renaissance and Early Modern period in Latin. He focuses particularly on the aesthetic change in attitude, which saw the mountain change from a bleak and unwelcoming place, to the open and exhilarating locus of beauty we recognise today. William's literary approach considers Latin texts written between the 15th and 18th centuries on topics from landscape art and perspective to natural philosophy.
