Chapter Summary

In recent years however the presupposition that the early Italian academies in general and the Accademia Romana in particular were well organized centers of Learning and that hostility existed between the papacy and the Roman humanists have been scrutinized. It has been shown that in this period Roman Learning was very loosely, informally organized and that it was interwoven with and for a major part even supported by the papal court. This chapter illustrates this nuanced view of Roman academy culture by focusing on Giannantonio Campano's career in this place and period. As he was both acquainted with Leto, as well as intimately connected with the papal court, we may gain more insight into the functioning of Leto's group of learned men in this Roman context. The chapter looks further into the relationship between this Academy and the papal court and how it changed in the course of time.

Keywords: Accademia Romana; Giannantonio Campano; Giulio Pomponio Leto; papal court; Roman academy culture; Roman humanists; Roman learning
