Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
Ludovico Beccadelli (1501-1572) was a protagonist of the political and religious events of his time: secretary to cardinal Contarini, nuncio in Venice and archbishop of Ragusa in Dalmazia, he took part in the last sessions of the Tridentine Council and spent his life at the service of the Church. Moreover, he actively participated in cultural life since he studied at the Universities of Bologna and Padova. His epistles are important to understand his personality and to study the cultural and social context in which he worked, with particular reference to the environment of the Roman curia during the sixteenth century. At the same time the epistles offer a ‘self-portrait’ of the author.
