Dear Brother, Gracious Maecenas: Latin letters of the Gyldenstolpe Brothers (1661–1680) presents Latin letters exchanged between six sons of Michael Wexionius Gyldenstolpe, the first Professor of History and Politics at the Academy of Turku. The letters offer insights into the life of a seventeenth-century educated family; their subject matters range from learned discussion to gossip and from largerworld news to family items. The introductory chapter discusses the language, epistolary style and conventions of Latin letter writing. The volume serves readers interested in several aspects of Swedish and Finnish history and culture in the early modern period.
