The paper focuses on three sonnets of the XIVth century concerning the topic of the fleetingness of the human life examined thorough one of the outstanding figures of the Middle Age: pope Boniface VIII. Their anonymous author combines literary structures with elements that come from the epigraphic sepulchral style and shows himself well aware of the posthumous trial that Boniface’s opponents were carrying on against the pope. The paper offers a critical edition of each sonnet illustrating their manuscript tradition and their cultural background.
