Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of proper nouns, terms and concepts relevant to the discussion on moral psychology in the Quattrocento in Florence. The Psalms were always highly regarded in medieval biblical culture. The Psalms also attracted the attention of a new group of intellectuals called the humanists. In fifteenth-century Florence for instance, Giannozzo Manetti who mastered, beyond Greek and Latin, also the Hebrew language, and wrote a famous treatise On the Dignity and Excellence of Man, translated between 1454 and 1455 the Psalter from Hebrew into a classical Ciceronian Latin, using Jewish commentators in the process.

Keywords: fifteenth-century Florence; Giannozzo Manetti; Giovanni Caroli; moral psychology; Penitential Psalms; Quattrocento
