Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview on a speech of Lodovico Pontano against Amadeus VIII at the end of April 1438 in Latin. The short but fiery career of the famous jurist Lodovico Pontano led from the universities of Bologna, Florence, Rome and Siena, the Roman curia and the court of Alfonso V of Aragón to the Council of Basel where he became rapidly one of the major conciliarist leaders and died at the age of only 30 years of the plague. Pontano's biography and the sequential analysis of his largely unedited works shows how a man of learning managed to present his legal skills. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Amadeus VIII; conciliarist; Council of Basel; Lodovico Pontano
