Chapter Summary

Andreas Dudith Sbardellatus was born into a modest, newly ennobled family. It was nonetheless significantly better connected and had much greater chances for political fulfilment and enrichment than the family of his compatriot Johannes Sambucus. In the summer of 1556 Andreas Dudith felt the conditions of his student life had sufficiently deteriorated to the point he began to seriously rethink his future. This moment of self-reflection is evidenced in an extraordinary long and sophisticated letter he addressed from Paris to Celio Secondo Curione, the beloved teacher of many Polish students. He confesses his admiration to the humanist hero and claims he had long planned to address him, but finally only overcame his timidity when he learnt that Curione could efficiently recommend him to Matteo Gribaldi Moffa, the famous professor of jurisprudence and radical religious thinker.
