«Accademia» and «Cahiers d’Accademia»

One of the main activities of the Société Marsile Ficin consists in the editing of an international  yearly journal: «Accademia»  – which issue XVIII is now in preparazione  – dedicated to ficinian and neoplatonic in Renaissance and its supplement the «Cahier» – which issues 10 and 11 are soon to be published – . The latter gathers proceedings of conferences, essays, monographs, bibliographies all related to Ficino and his milieu. The "Cahiers" are issued irregularly because they depend on scientific events with no fixed schedule. They are sent free to the SMF's members. The "Cahier "10  bears on Ficino's notes on De mysteriis di Iamblico in the ms. Vallicellianus F20. As to the  "Cahier" 11, it  deals with the theme of the christian cabbala.
Amongst the bibliografic tools provided by «Accademia» there is the  ficinian bibliography 1986-2008, the bibliography on  Leon Ebrew and the one on  Pico della Mirandola (see journal summaries). We are presently proceeding to the re-reading of a new and up to date  ficinian bibliography, by Thomas Gilbhard - Head of the Library and Book Art Collection of the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg - covering years 2000-2010 which publication is planned to come out within a few months, for sure before the end of 2019.
