Chapter Summary

This appendix presents the translation of excerpt from letter of Vincent of Aggsbach to John Schlitpacher, February 25, 1451. In this letter, when Cusanus was in Austria as papal legate, Vincent had already complained bitterly about Cusanus' recent elevation to cardinal, his dispensation of the jubilee indulgence, and his program for religious reform in Germany. Vincent mocks the notion of Cusanus being able to carry out an effective campaign of church reform independently of the Council, and insinuates that his legation is merely a pretext for the collection of money from the sale of jubilee indulgences, which the new Cardinal will no doubt pocket for himself.

Keywords: Cusanus' legation; John Schlitpacher; Vincent of Aggsbach
