The Netherlands were a crossroad of literature. The question will be how such a relatively small state could play such an important role in the transnationality of European literature. This question will be discussed focusing on Neo-Latin drama from the sixteenth century, in which the Low Countries played a very important role. What functions did these dramas have, and how were they disseminated across Europe? In what ways can we map and analyse this dissemination?
