Abstract

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 Padua. His epistles are important to study the cultural and social context he worked in, with particular reference to the environment of the Roman curia; and at the same time they offer a ‘self-portrait’ of the author. The Appendix lists the few published epistles (ancient and modern editions) and the manuscripts containing unpublished letters (both sent and received) I could find in my research about Beccadelli’s correspondence.
