The iter italicum, the peregrinatio academica to prestigious Italian universities, holds a special place in the history of late-medieval universities. Students from all over Europe flocked to the studia on the peninsula, including several well-known - but how many more unknown? – scholars and humanists from the Northern Netherlands. Nevertheless, this group of adventurous students has not yet been honoured with a monograph.

This volume fills that gap. It provides the first comprehensive analysis of the nature of the iter italicum from the Northern Netherlands in the late-medieval period. Through a systematic investigation of the academic activities, background, and careers of 640 – many hitherto unknown - students, the author unravels the character of the iter italicum and its place in, and contribution to, society and culture in this transitional period for the Low Countries.
