This chapter discusses the first twenty years of the 16th century, which was a time when most humanists were zealously pursuing the programme of Valla's imperialist designs at the practical level. The different views of Paolo Cortesi and Giovanni Pico della Mirandola are also examined in this chapter, with regards to the argument about the Latin language.
