Introduction:

Generically, one may describe transculturality as an effect coming about when two cultures engage with each other in such a way that a specific feature of one culture is imprinted on the other, thereby producing a new cultural phenomenon that is attributable to both parent cultures, while the feature of the first culture that was imprinted on the second, too, will henceforth belong to both cultures in that the new element cannot be conceived without it. Both cultural phenomena, the imprinting as well as the imprinted one, together form a transcultural phenomenon. – Examples of such transcultural phenomena abound throughout history. During the Europe-wide spread of the Renaissance movement, for instance, the latter, though being Italian in origin, ceased to be a genuinely Italian phenomenon when taking roots also in France, Germany, England, and Spain – while of course never becoming a genuinely French, German, English, and Spanish phenomenon. Indeed, it eventually was French, German, English, and Spanish as much as it was Italian. Roughly the same is true for Greece and the Hellenic culture, and indeed for England and the English language.
