The Other Virgil

Craig Kallendorf (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Francesco Filelfo, a humanist scholar who was well known in the 15th century and whose mastery of Latin scholarship should have positioned him at the centre of power and privilege. He chose to advertise his skill by imitating the Aeneid, but the Aeneid he saw was not the straightforward one that was being presented by the first generations of humanist schoolmasters.

Keywords:   Francesco Filelfo, Virgil, Aeneid, humanists
