In conclusion, this project may be expected to produce an innovative interpretation of fifteenth- and
sixteenth-century rhetorical theories, and philological and rhetorical practices. It will shed light on an
important chapter of the history of the classical tradition and its results will represent an invaluable
instrument for future research, yielding high impact on scholarship concerning disciplines ranging from
literary studies to book history to history of ideas.
