There were about thirty scholars from Moreana and Amici Thomae Mori at the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference in Bruges. The city of Bruges had been aptly chosen for this event which celebrated the 500th anniversary of both the first publication of Thomas More's Utopia and Erasmus' Novum Instrumentum.
We organized 5 panels and a roundtable and were present in two other panels. Most of the sessions were devoted to Utopia and the roundtable gathered translators and specialists of the translation of Utopia into various modern languages.
On this occasion we were happy to meet for a Verre de l'Amitié, and honor Elizabeth McCutcheon whom we wanted to thank for allowing us to reprint a number of her essays in the December 2015 Moreana.
