[Autom. eng. transl.] When asked to take a position on an institutional question concerning the extension of the duration of the highest government offices within the Cassinese congregation, at the beginning of 1613 Angelo Grillo drafted a 'Speech', published here for the first time. Also because it is intended only for an oral use during the general chapter of the congregation, and in any case not to be printed, Grillo considered it permissible to carry out repeated and extensive withdrawals from other works, often to this 'Speech' a little earlier. Nevertheless, rather than revealing a case of plagiarism, this document appears to reveal the range of readings of the Benedictine monk, particularly in the field of contemporary political theory.
