Chapter Summary

While Sambucus the philologist, doctor and court historian embodied a rather usual mixture of attributes of the humanists persona, Dudith needed to embrace considerably more divergent intellectual and public roles; he was not only a member of the Republic of Letters and a prestigious servant of the Habsburg court, but also an Catholic bishop, a landowner and member of the Moravian estate, a religious thinker, and a scientist. Dudith was a mightily skilful editor both in mixing up chronology and in cutting the original writings. On the whole, Dudiths self-fashioning meant a selective presentation of a multifaceted story attuned to the expectations of his contemporaries using the tropes and standardised models that were at hand.
