Chapter Summary

The oration turned out to have been delivered by Petrus Cunaeus, who had been teaching subsequently Latin, Politica and Law in Leiden from 1610 until his death in 1638. Burmannus must have had a special interest in the correspondences of his predecessors at Leiden University. He played an essential part in the acquisition of the correspondence and other manuscripts and books that were once in possession of Justus Lipsius for his university in 1722. Several of those orations had been published separately as well as being published together in one volume in Leiden in 1640. Because of Cunaeus elegant Latin style, they had also been reprinted in Germany five times.
