The articles in this collection focus on politics in the widest sense and its influence and visibility in translations from the early Middle Ages to the late Renaissance - from Eusbius' translations of Virgil to Shakespeare's adaptation of the story of Titus Andronicus. No translation, this collection argues, is an innocent, transparent rendering of the original; translation is always carried out in a certain cultural and political ambience.
