The diffusion of Petrarch’s Latin works, with special regard to the German countries in the XV century, follows definite lines as the manuscript tradition coming from there shows. In fact, during this period a substantial number of manuscripts was written and read in monasteries, where Petrarch was appreciated as Christian moral philosopher; an other consistent group was property of students who studied in Italian universities or in the universities of Erfurt, Leipzig and Vienna, and who read his works because of their interest on rhetoric and on the new culture. The publication of Agostino Sottili’s studies on Petrarch gives the possibility of reflecting on these matters and underlines that new perspectives on this research will come from the study of Petrarch’s reception in pre-humanists’ or humanists’ writings outside of Italy.
