 Parvae sunt partes orbis terrarum Croatia et Tyrolis; attamen in utraque vigebat paene praeter opinionem studium Latine scribendi. Quod studium erat sicut tessera cuius ope viri docti cuiuscumque nationis, maximae an minimae, divitis an pauperis, vicissim aemularentur. Notitia bibliographica docet in Croatia ab anno 976 usque ad annum 1984 auctores 1296 scripsisse opera Latina alicuius momenti 3866. In Tyrolide vero a saeculo XIII usque ad novissima tempora plus quam 2000 auctores plus quam 7000 opera composuerant. Sed in singulis saeculis quot auctores floruerint, ut in Croatia, ita in Tyrolide? Is numerus qua ratione iunctus sit cum numero totius populi, et ea ratio progressu temporis creveritne an decreverit? Quae fuerint auctorum vicissitudines, quo modo se invicem laudaverint et sublevaverint? Quae genera litteraria quibus praeponderaverint temporibus? Opera sintne plura scripta versu an oratione soluta? Numerus operum quo nexu ligetur cum vi et momento eorum? Haec et alia nobis investiganda proposuimus indagatione litteraria et digitali, qua in re ratio nostra similis est aliquantum ei, quae iam "lectio e recessu" (distant reading) appellata est a Franco Moretti (Graphs, Maps, Trees: Abstract Models for Literary History, 2005). Cum possit lectio sine lectione videri, est tamen accessus ad comparationem litterarum, ut dicitur, sociologicam.  Parvae sunt partes orbis terrarum Croatia et Tyrolis; attamen in utraque vigebat paene praeter opinionem studium Latine scribendi.

 It is well known that Neo-Latin epic, including Christian epic, widely employs the ancient mythological apparatus. The phenomenon has been studied as one of the prominent and most obvious characteristics which the epic genre 'owes' to the antiquity, usually on individual texts. In this paper I am going to present the results of a digital experiment performed on three chronologically distant Christian epics of Croatian Neo-Latin authors (Jacobus Bonus from Dubrovnik, De uita et gestis Christi, 1526; Caietanus Vicich from Rijeka, Jesseidos libri XII, 1700; Josephus Ciobarnich from Makarska, Dioclias, ms. ante 1846, ed. 1881). The experiment consisted in isolating and analyzing all proper names of classical origin from the total of 26000 verses. Working on large amounts of text and with big numbers, I am trying to gain an ‘objective’ insight into the status of the mythological apparatus in the three poems and draw conclusions on how it was used, in which contexts, how its relative frequency reflects the doctrinal rigor of their authors or the ideological or aesthetic preferences of their respective periods.  It is well known that Neo-Latin epic, including Christian epic, widely employs the ancient mythological apparatus.
