Chapter Summary

The authoritative effect of the Poet Laureate title extends not only to the poetry, but to a much wider range of authorship: Rhetoric, Prose speech in different types, scientific papers, public speech, with the pursuit of research and education in the broadest sense. The poet coronation had been rediscovered as an instrument of authorization of Francesco Petrarca, who was crowned as poet at Easter 1341 in Rome at the Capitol by the magistrates of Rome. Henceforth Petrarch took the title of poet Laureate by default in the titulary of his works, including his prose writings. The authorization of Petrarca has declared himself in a coronation speech, Collatio laureationis published by him. As poet Petrarch's coronation represents the basis, first their ritual ingredients and their symbolism are discussed. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: authorship; Collatio laureationis; Francesco Petrarca; poet coronation ritual; Poet Laureate title; prose writings
