This is the first modern critical edition and German translation of Surditatis encomium (In Praise of Deafness), written in Latin by Martinus Schoockius (1614–1669). Alongside a brief portrait of the Dutch author and polymath, an introduction and commentary locate the text within the genre tradition of ironic encomia and reveal its connections to discourses of disease in the early modern period.
