«Amabo te, mi Murete». The letters by Paolo Manuzio to Marc’Antoine Muret and the jesuit Pietro Lazzari.

Lorenzo Mancini


The discovery of 32 letters sent by Paolo Manuzio (1512-1574) to Marc'Antoine Muret (1526-1585) at the Historical Archives of the Pontifical Gregorian University could permit for the first time a comparison between the original text and that one published by the heir of Aldo Manuzio. A lot of the discrepancies was already reported by the Jesuit Pietro Lazzari (1711-1789), who in 1757 pointed in the one of his works dedicated to some texts of the Bibliotheca Maior, where the private library of the French Scholar arrived in 1601. This work was quite unknown until now and it is revived with the publication of other variants not reported by Lazzari and two unpublished letters.
