Abstract:

Consists of four manuscripts. The first is the De infelicitate principum of Poggio Bracciolini, and is an imaginary dialogue among the Florentine humanists Niccolò Niccoli, Carlo Marsuppini, and Cosimo de Medici. It touches on questions of political philosophy. The second manuscript is the Isagogicon moralis disciplinae of Leonardo Bruni. It is a compendium of moral philosophy which formed the foundations of Florentine civic humanism. The third manuscript is attributed to Emperor Theodosius II and is a fabricated charter of the University of Bologna to show that the city had been selected as a center of learning. The charter contributed to the origin myth of the university. The fourth manuscript is one of several medieval collections of Latin synonyms spuriously ascribed to Marcus Tullius Cicero, or to the apocryphal Cicero Victurius.
