Chapter Summary

When Lodovico Pontano moved to the Aragonese court in the spring of 1436, the entire action of king Alfonso V. was marked by his Italian policy. The Aragonese king had now opened his headquarters in the Gaeta in the immediate vicinity of Naples. The Court of Gaeta was the meeting place of famous humanists and lawyers. Lodovico Pontano is made apparently in his own humanist circle of friends known. This chapter presents an overview on persuasivity and performativity of treatise speeches. The possibilities of reconstruction of persuasivity of speeches, however, are limited. An approach to describe the pragmatic functionality of argued Texts of the speeches is often used in the definition of orality and literacy. The significance of speeches (and Tract speeches) as historical sources was undervalued for a long time. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Aragonese court; humanists; literacy; Lodovico Pontano; orality; performativity; persuasivity
