Db. Reviews of Scholarship

These are mainly carried out in editions and in other studies, e.g. Chabaille (C.39), Gaiter (C.44), Maggini (C.55), Carmody (C.63), Bolton Holloway (C.85, E), Testa (Da), Ceva (E), Mazzoni (E), Scherillo (E), Sundby (E). Work on Li Livres dou Tresor and consists in the main of editions and of source and influence studies; these cover the scholarship as part of their main argument. For Il tesoro, La rettorica, see section F. For critical reviews of work on Latini and Dante, see Gaspary (LbI.3.Rev), and most items in LbIIIB and LbIV. German scholars have carried on an interesting debate concerning BL's poetry for a century.

F. Politics, Rhetoric, Poetics

BL believed that writing was both a political and an ethical practice; that politics, ethics and poetics were to be combined for the good of the comune, of the city, and he so combined them in his own profession for his city, his comune, of Florence, in so doing deeply influencing his colleagues and his students. See Bolton Holloway (C.85), and Twice-Told Tales (E). BL's separate Rettorica is mainly a translation of Cicero's De inventione. His Tresor and Tesoro discuss education, including rhetoric in terms of the citizen's responsibility, and then in third, final, discuss rhetoric, giving a translation of Cicero, followed by an account of how the podestà should carry out his governmental office with justice and witout corruption. The second part of the Tresor gives a translation of Aristotle's Ethics, followed by sayings of different philosophers concerning vice and virtue. Florence had no recognized university until 1349, and Arras had none. The evidence from BL MSS is that 'Maestro' BL was teaching in the setting of his notarial chambers in Arras and in the Chancery in Florence, using standard university material, Aristotle, Cicero, Ptolemy, Alfraganus, and applying these texts to the reality of government and politics in his day.

This section includes not only discussions of medieval rhetoric (see also A on MSS & B sections on editions of BL's Rettorica, Orazioni and Sommetta) but also accounts of Florentine history in BL's day, both primary and secondary, for that history was highly political. There are few references to poetics outside the accounts of rhetoric, although it is interesting that in Tesoretto (lines 411-26), BL says that he has to file his verses as if with a whetstone to adjust form to meaning; this derives from an arabo-classical topos. A useful book for understanding BL and his half-told tale, Tesoretto, is Frank Kermode, The Sense of an Ending, New York, Oxford University Press, 1967.

A glance at the manuscripts of Tesoretto (Ba) will show that several are to be found in collections of rhetorical writings. Gaiter (C.44), p. xliii, noted an Italian Tesoro MS at Verona bound with L'Etica di Aristotile volgarizzata of BL and the Fiore di Rettoric di M. Tullio of Guidotto da Bologna. However, I failed to find it there. Some of the Spanish manuscripts also reflect this combination. James R. East has translated 'Book Three of BL's Tresor . . . Its Contribution to Rhetorical Theory', for his 1960 Ph.D. dissertation (C.72). De Robertis' book on Dante's VN (LbI) is a splendid discussion of Ciceronian rhetoric in BL and DA. On p. 90 he mentions Firenze, Biblioteca Nazionale II.IV.73, Rettorica MS (Bc.2). See also Marigo (G). Cesare Segre (BgIV) has an important discussion of BL, pp. 131-32, noting that his Rettorica precedes Jean d'Antioch's of 1282. See above all Wieruszowski (C.71, on F2, Tesoro with Sommetta, BbII.19), pp. 186-89, with sections Bd, Epistolarium, Be, Sommetta, on BL's letters. Giles Constable's volume on Letters and Letter Collections, Typologie des Sources du Moyen Age Occidental 17, Turnholt, Brepols, 1976, can be of use.

On the historical materials it may be of value to look at Donald E. Queller, The Office of the Ambassador in the Middle Ages, Princeton, University Press, 1967, though he nowhere mentions BL, who was Florence's Ambassador to Alfonso el Sabio in 1260. Likewise Nicola Ottokar, Il Comune di Firenze al fine del Dugento, Firenze: Vallechi, 1926, fails to mention BL. Of value, though also not mentioining BL, is Niccolò Machiavelli, History of Florence and of the Affairs of Italy from the Earliest Times to the Death of Lorenzo the Magnificent (trans. Felix Gilbert, New York, Harper, 1960). Machiavelli writes in the tradition of Florentine historiography which was shaped by Livy, Sallust and BL. BL's work centres on his concern for the comune and its freedom, within a Ciceronian and Aristotelian context, inspired in turn by Athenian democracy and Roman republicanism. Machiavelli, Coluccio Salutati and BL were all members of the Florentine Chancery. BL, in his writings, often discusses the office of the ambassador.

For further works related to this area, see section M and also the relationship between BL and DA as master and student in the Chancery context (Lb). Isidoro Del Lungo's appendix to Sundby (E.27), 'Alla biografia di ser BL, contribuito di documenti', pp. 199-27, is useful for state documents mentioning BL. Carroll (LbIIIB), quoting Toynbee, p. 33, quoting Del Lungo, notes that BL's name appeared in 35 public documents between 21 October 1282 and 22 July 1292. Actually, he appears in the documents for this period, 42 times (E.6). Dante refers to BL in VE, speaking of him as 'Brunectum Florentinum'. Segre (BgIV), p. 22, notes his importance to 'letteratura cancellerseca'. It is important, too, to look at items in Ja on Aristotle and Cicero and the dissertation by J. Thomas (H) on BL's Ciceronian orations. See also Hans Robert Jauss (G).

BL may have been influenced by Alfonso el Sabio's use of Eusebian historical parallels. DA and G. Villani, like Bede and Geoffrey of Monmouth, were to continue this practice. BL was twice exposed to its method, in Spain from Alfonso, in France from Vincent de Beauvais. He wrote such universal history in the first part of the Tresor and, perhaps, elsewhere (N), and DA associates him with the Troy/Fiesole origins of Florence in Inf. XV. See Davis (F), and primary materials in Ja,b.

G. Didactic Allegory, Cosmography, Bestiaries and Encyclopedism

Laurentian Library, Plut. 42.19, Brunetto Latino, IlTesoro, folio 72

Both Il Tesoretto and Li Livres dou Tresor are encyclopedic works, written in the manner of Isidore, Vincent de Beauvais and the Chartrian poets. For the debate among the critics concerning BL's didactic allegorization, see D. Wieruszowski (C.71) discusses BL's cosmology, pp. 177-85. Sources to investigate concerning these matters are Ptolemy/Alfraganus, Almagest (Jb,La1) and Petrus Alfonsi (Jb). Chabaille (C.39) and Degenhart (Ia) are useful for visual evidence of cosmology and allgeory. In relation to this material one should look also at Francesco da Barberino (LaII), Scherillo (E), pp- 212-21, and Fauriel (E), pp. 290-91. See also Billanovich, Giuseppe, Maria Prandi, Claudio Scarpati. 'Lo "Speculum" di Vincenzo di Beauvais et la letteratura italiana dell'età gotica'. Italia medievale e umanistica XIX (1976), 89-170 (Jb).

For material concerning the mappaemundi (which BL gained largely from his encounter with Arabic scholaship at the court of Alfonso el Sabio, specifically his knowledge of Alfraganus' Almagest which he will teach to DA, C.85, p. xxiii, 152), see Gaston Paris (E), pp. 139-44; Michael C. Andrew, 'The Study and Classification of Medieval Mappae Mundi', Archeologia 75 (1926), 61-76; Abraham bar Hiyya, La obra 'Forma de la tierra', ed. José Millás Vallicrosa, Madrid, 1965; Konrad Miller, Mappae Arabicae, Stuttgart, 1927; Mappaemundi, 1896-98; George Sarton, 'Konrad Miller: Mappae Arabicae', Isis 9 (1927), 458-62; Joachim Lelewel, Géographie du Moyen Age, Brussels, 1852, 2 vols. These are studies of the visual representation of the world; however, BL is also copying Ptolemy/Alfraganus in his verbal mapping of the world's geography. This trait can be observed also in the Roman de la Rose and the Commedia which are called mappae mundi by an early commentator, Laurent de Premierfait (for which see John V. Fleming, The 'Roman de la Rose': A Study in Allegory and Iconography, Princeton: University Press, 1969, p. 18), and in the Travels of Sir John Mandeville, who says his book was checked against a mappae mundi by the Pope upon his return. Visually BL's maps in Il tesoretto (Laurenziano Strozziano 146, Ba.1) and Tresor (Douce 319, BbI.22) are upside.down in the Arabic manner (C.85,C.99).

A brief note on the Chartrians: R.W. Southern has pointed out that 'Chartrian' is really a nineteenth-century term for a group of Neoplatonists actually centred in Paris but whose names coincidentally associated them with Chartres. Important studies on the body of material connected with twelfth-century Neoplatonists in France include: Brain Stock, The Myth of Science in the Twelfth Century: A Study of Bernardus Sylvester, Princeton: University Press, 1972; Winthrop Wetherbee, ed. and trans. The Cosmographia of Bernardus Silvestris, New York: Columbia University Press, 1973. Earlier material includes A. Clerval, Les Ecoles de Chartres au Moyen Age du Ve au XVIe siècle, Chartres: Mémoires de la Societé Archéologique, 1895; Charles Homer Haskins, The Renaissance of the Twelfth Century, Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press, 1927; Reginald Lane Poole, Illustrations of the History of Medieval Thought, London: Willian & Wingate, 2nd ed., 1920. Surprisingly, George P. Economou, The Goddess Natura in Medieval Literature, Cambridge, Mass.;  Harvard University Press, 1972, omits BL's Tesoretto and its depiction of Natura. The affinity between BL's writings and the English Piers Plowman is due to their sharing of the French vision material which in the twelfth century was written in Latin, in the thirteenth-fourteenth centuries in the vernacular and which used a vision framework in which to present their didactic encyclopedism. For this see the Roman de la Rose and also John Fleming's The 'Roman de la Rose'. BL is both a Neoplatonist 'Chartrian' and a scholastic Aristotelian. It had been Boethius' dream to reconcile Plato and Aristotle. BL uses Platonism for Il tesoretto, Aristotelianism for his Tresor, and is comfortable with both. So also is DA.

Like T. Bertelli, I read this manuscript as copying the source for Brunetto Latini, rather than as a translation of him, in part because of my research under Sir Richard Southern on the twelfth-century physician cosmographer Petrus Alfonsi and the use of 'Arin' in Arabic cosmography.

H. Languages and Linguistics.

Like John Gower, whom he influenced (F, LcIII), BL is a trilingual writer. His Tresor is in Picard French, albeit with Italianisms and Latinisms, Orazioni, Tesoretto and Rettorica in Italian (Pozzi notes his gallicisms in Tesoretto, C.73), his letters of state in Latin. His reason for writing Tresor in French, though it is clearly about Florentine civic policy, is because that is the lingua franca (particularly of Charles of Anjou for whom it was intended). Sir John Mandeville and Marco Polo likewise were to give this as their reason for writing in French rather than their own vernaculars. See, concerning this, Josephine Waters Bennett, The Rediscovery of Sir John Mandeville, New York: MLA, 1954, who finds that Mandeville really was an Englishman and that the best manuscripts of his work are Anglo-Norman and in English libraries; chauvinist Belgian scholars in the nineteenth century claimed him as a Belgian, only pretending to be English. As for BL's use of Italian, he is a major early Florentine writer, thus shaping (especially through his teaching of Dante) the Italian language. For this reason the Accademia della Crusca made use of his works for its Vocabolario (H) in the manner that Furnivall and Murray were later to do with medieval English texts for the Oxford English Dictionary. Chabaille (B.39), p. xxvi, notes that Du Cange used Tresor: see Glossarium mediae et infimae latinitati, Index auctorum, X, xv. Concerning the use of Latin and the vernacular in this period see Michail Baktin, Rabelais and his World, trans. Hélène Iswolsky, Cambridge, Mass.: MIT Press, 1968; Woflram von Steinem, 'Das mittelalterliche Latein als historisches Phänomen', Schweizerische Zeitschrift für Geschichte 7 (1957), 1-27; Dante's comments in VE and Convivio. See Pézard (LbIV), who claims that DA considers BL a traitor to Italian for writing in French. We know now that BL also wrote an Italian version of Tresor; apart from the Latin documents of state, all his other works are also in Italian. He was influenced by Alfonso el Sabio's vernacular writings and in turn influences DA to use Florentine vernacular. Pézard's charge is unfounded. The remainder of BL's Italian writings, other than La rettorica and Il tesoretto, need a critical edition for philological work. See Carducci (E).

I. Art

This section is divided into materials associated with Il tesoretto illuminations, Li Livres dou Tresor illuminations, the Bargello portrait by Giotto of BL and DA and other portraits, and DC illuminations of BL and DA, Inferno XV. Of value to the Tesoretto, Tesoro illluminations are studies of Francesco da Barberino's miniatures to his writings (LaII); illuminations to DA, DC, such as Peter Brieger, Millard Meiss and Charles Singleton, Illuminated Manuscripts of the 'DC', Princeton: University Press, 1969 (Id), and G. Biagi, La 'DC' nella figurazione artistica e nel secolare comento, Torino: UTET, 1924, 3 vols (LbIIIA ). See also John V. Fleming, The 'Roman de la Rose': A Study in Allegory and Iconography, and Pierre Courcelle, 'La Consolation de Philosophie' dans la tradition littéraire, Paris: Etudes Augustiennes, 1967, which give plates demonstrating the iconography of related texts. Bolton Holloway (B ) in her art appendix, pp. 151-61, gives Tesoretto illuminations and in Twice-Told Tales (E ) gives Tesoro ones; likewise Helene Wieruszowski (C.71) gives MSS illuminations for Tesoro, following p. 190, from Firenze, Biblioteca Nazionale, II.VIII.36 and Biblioteca Laurenziana. Plut.42.19, fols 62, 72, and 12, the last showing BL teaching students (BbII). Chabaille (C.39) gives engravings of Li Livres dou Tresor's cosmographical illuminations. Consult also Stefano Bottari, 'Per la cultura di Oderisi da Gubbio e di Franco Bolognese' in Dante e Bologna nei tempi di Dante, Bologna: Carducci, 1967, pp. 54-59; and Skinner (F). While Douglas P. Lackey, 'Giotto's Mirror', Studi danteschi, 66 (2001), pp. 243-253, does not mention BL, he ably shows influence on Giotto's Arena Chapel Virtues and Vices in grisaille as from Cicero, and notes Francesco da Barberino's comments on these, 1308. We should also look, in this continuum, from Alfonso el Sabio, Las Cantigas de Santa Maria, Brunetto Latino, Li Livres dou Tresor and Il Tesoro, Dante Alighieri, Commedia, at Convenevole da Prato, Biblioteca Nazionale, Banco Rari 38, MS produced for King Robert d'Angiò. BL associated with an earlier Convenovole da Prato, likely the father. Likewise, Ser Francesco da Barberino (LaII) is associated with the production of Dante manuscripts as well as of his own, Christopher de Hamel, A History of Illuminated Manuscripts, Oxford: Phaidon, 1986, pp. 143-144.

F. Villani (F & Ic) discusses the Giotto portrait of DA and BL. Barlow (E), p. 431, notes Vasari on this portrait. Ortolan (M) and Denis (G) also discuss this portrait in the Bargello by Giotto, Ortolan mentioning that Dante's tomb at Ravenna has BL in a medallion, also Virgil. Davidsohn's Italian edition (F), II, pl. 24, gives a later portrait of BL, one of a series done in the Renaissance of famous Florentines. More work needs to be done on Franco da Bologna and Oderisi da Gubbio, contemporary illuminators to BL and DA (whom DA mentions, Purg. X), for the light they could throw on BL book production. Both were associated with Bologna. Could the illuminations of MSS in Madrid be theirs?

Notes, p. lxxxi, that Giotto portrait was done with mirrors. The remains of Bargello painting are now said to be Last Judgment with DA and BL  in Paradise or of the comune. Notes, p. lxxxii, that Taddeo di Gaddo, Giotto's godchild, has portraits of Giotto, Dante and Guido Cavalcanti at Santa Croce.

However, the MSS incipit initials with their portraits, especially those dated in the thirteenth century and produced in BL workshops, are more likely to present a truer portrait of BL. I especially trust those in the Laurentian Strozziano 146 (Ba.1), illuminated in the same style as Francesco da Barberino's Documenti d'amore (LaII.MSS). FB was BL's student. See also Fornari (LbIV).

J. Sources

These are divided into three sections: a. Classical and Patristic, b. Medieval and Arabic, c. Theme of Treasure. In the second a problem exists. A cluster of materials centres upon both the Roman de la Rose, which perhaps precedes BL in time, and upon the sonnet supposed to have been written by DA, 'Questa pulzeletta', which belongs in the section on Influences, specifically LbI. The reader is asked to refer to both these sections when researching either problem. For Roman de la Rose and Fiore materials see also the bibliographies of Neri (Da), pp. 43-44, and V. Biagi (LbI), pp. 61-72.

Cited, Dillay, p. 386 (Jb), noting BL's use of Al-Farghani/Alfraganus, Corti (LaI). I checked this MS and others. I do not believe this is MS BL used.

Alfraganus and other astronomical MSS are:

Jb.5.MS1. Firenze, Laur. Plut. 29.9. Scholastic hand, no figures in MS. Mentions 'Arind'.

Jb.5.MS2. Paris, B.N. lat. 6556. Exquisite MS in Bolognan libraria with figures. Carmody likely errs in saying this is Latin translation of Tresor; it could be copy of Latin original from which BL translated. MS cites 'Asaph ebreum' in rubrics on fol. 2v. Omits 'Arin'. Should be compared with Tesoro, Firenze, B.N., II.VIII.36, in Bolognan libraria, dated 1286.

Jb.5.MS3. Madrid, B.N. 8989. Contains Euclid, Alfraganus, Roger Bacon, university book, with annotation. Fine figures.

Of the above BN lat. 6556 (Jb5.MS2) is closest to BL's text, rather than Laur. Plut. 29.9. BL does not mention Arin, though later Tresor MSS interpolate it.

The poems are similar encyclopedic works, but Peire de Corbiac (as he is usually called) does not give his work the 'Chartrian' apparatus BL uses. Tezaur gives more historiographical material, including a very interesting Arthurian section. See Scherillo (E23) on plagiarism issue, pp. 127-29; Nannucci (C.24), I. 464-70, and Sundby (E), pp. 34-36, denied plagiarism, noting that Tezaur was written after 1270.

K. Contemporaries

This section covers Alfonso X el Sabio of Castile, Rustico de Filippo and Palamidesse, Fra Guidotto and Bono Giamboni, and Taddeo Alderotto. Of interest, too, for Alfonso X is the BL passage on the election of an emperor. Sundby/Mussafia (E), pp. 386-87, as well as the epistolary formulae with which to address Alfonso X in the Sommetta (Be, C.71). Cerulli (Jb) notes that Alfonso was responsible for translating Il Libro della Scala. For Rustico di Filippo and Palamidesse see also Bertoni (E) and the anthologies of early Italian literature; for Fra Guidotto da Bologna and Bono Giamboni, see Cecchi/Sapegno (E), pp. 604-12, 623, and Schiaffini (E), pp. 148-50. Asperti (F) is useful for the Angevin poetic milieu, involving Arras and Naples, in which BL's contemporaries participated with political tenzoni.

Ka. Alfonso el Sabio

Brunetto Latino on embassy to King Alfonso X el Sabio of Spain, with whom he exchanged books

The collection of MSS in the Escorial and in the Biblioteca Nacional, Madrid, of works written by Alfonso el Sabio, are useful. A magnificent Las Cantigas de Santa Maria is Firenze, Biblioteca Nazionale, MS Banco Rari 20, formerly II.1.2.3, likely a gift from Alfonso X to BL's comune. The Laurentian Library has two MSS of the Alfonsine Tales, Plut. 29.5 and Plut 29.7. See also Schirrmacher (M), and BbIII, Ja.27, Jb passim, Jc, LcIV.

The cultural openness to Islam through Jewish translators at the court of Alfonso X el Sabio of Castille would later encourage Dante to explore these avenues at the court of Can Grande della Scala in Verona, for which see D. Boccassini, Il volo della mente: Falconeria e Sofia (Jb); Imanuello Romano, L'Inferno e Il Paradiso, trans. Giorgio Battistoni (Firenze: Giuntina, 2000); Giorgio Battistoni, Dante, Verona e la Cultura Ebraica (Firenze: Giuntina, 2004); Sandra Debenedetti Stow, Dante e la mistica ebraica (Firenze: Giuntina, 2004).

While Scott (LbII) notes that Dante derives his parallelism in history from BL, it should be observed that BL may derives his Eusebian perspective partly from Alfonso el Sabio's Estoria which likewise draws parallels between Old Testament history and Greco-Roman mythology.

It is interesting that Dante's definition of the pilgrim in VN XL (and consequently that of Cesare Ripa, Nova iconologia, Padua, 1618) echoes that in Siete partidas I.497-500. I suggest that BL transmitted this text from Spain to Italy, from Alfonso to DA.

Testa (Da), p. 83, cites scholarship on Bono Giamboni. Segre (C.70), pp. 227-54, doubts that Bono Giamboni was translator of Tresor as Tesoro, noting, p. 311, that only one Tesoro MS, M (BbII.35) bears Bono Giamboni's name. See also BbIII, BgIII and the printed editions ascribed to Brunetto Latino, C.2, 4, 6, 12, 38, 42, 43, 58, and those ascribed to Bono Giamboni, C.26, 34, 44, 50.

Again, Segre claims (p. xiv) Tesoro was not translated by Bono Giamboni, a section of which is a treatise on virtues and vices. G. Villani says BL wrote such a work.

Bono Giamboni was a Ghibelline Florentine judge and associate of BL, particularly during the Peace of Cardinal Latino. In the Florentine State Archives for Santa Maria Novella, 13 July 1272, we find adjacent documents involving the sale of property, one witnessed by BL, the other by Bono Giamboni (A.53). Their material is similar, causing the later confusion. As colleagues they could easily influence each other.

BL translated Hermann the German's translation of Aristotle's Ethics, made at Toledo in 1240-43 into French for the Tresor. For the Italian Tesoro he used Taddeo di Alderotto's Latin or Italian translation, made in 1243-44, of the Ethics instead, and he carefully calls attention to this in the manuscripts. The first version emanates from Spanish Islam; the second from Frederick II's Sicilian Renaissance, who gave it to the University of Bologna, his son Manfred giving it to the University of Paris. (Robert Grosseteste's translation of the Ethics was also thought to have been made made 1240-43. However, R.W. Southern, Jb38, believes it is later.) Taddeo's other writings are all in Latin. Carmody (B.63), p. xxviii, says that scholars incorrectly speak of Taddeo having made an Italian translation. Berlan (C.28), p. ix, notes that some people assume Taddeo translated the Ethica into the vernacular. BL's text contains an ambiguity: 'Explicit hetica aristotiles a magistro Taddeo in volgare traslactata', which can mean either than Taddeo translated it into the vernacular or that Taddeo's Latin text has now been translated by BL into the vernacular, a translation of a translation. See esp. G, H, Ja. Maria Corti's Dante a un nuova crocevia (Firenze: Sansoni, 1982), pp. 14, 23-24, discusses the Averroistic context of Bologna, including Taddeo di Alderotto (excellent), but did not relate this material to DA and Guido Cavalcanti through BL, while her posthumous book,  Scritti su Cavalcanti e Dante. La felicità mentale. Percorsi dell'invenzione e altri saggi (Torino: Einaudi, 2003), centres on that relationship (LaI1). My own conclusion, from MSS evidence, is that BL translated Taddeo's Latin into Italian because it was the official text (see Ke). See also Salviati (H).

Kf. Il Fiore

The Roman de la Rose (written out in Italian hand), Il Fiore and the Detto d'amore were once together in the same manuscript, now to be found separately at Montepellier and in the Laurentian Library. The Fiore MS, Montpellier H 438, was not always at Montpellier, being acquired by Etienne Bouhier when he was a student in 1611 at Padua and taken first to Dijon, then Troyes, before being housed at Montpellier. It is important to remember that Francesco da Barberino (LaII) was also at Padua. See also Neri (Da) and Jb for Roman de la Rose materials, Brownlee (Kf) for Il Fiore. See also N. Doubtful Works.

Response to Contini's assertion that Fiore is DA's. Very structuralist. Relates Fiore and Detto d'amore to each other lexically, and not both to DA. Notes metrical similarity of Tesoretto and Detto. Argues for BL's authorship, through reading Montpellier MS 'ser Durante' as 'ser Burnetto'. I disagree with this conclusion and with Contini's, while seeing these works clearly as products of BL's circle, and, in this case, most likely by Francesco da Barberino.

L. Influence
BL's influence upon DA will swell this part of the bibliography. But BL was important for other writers also, from his day until ours. All the entries in section E are relevant here. Scherillo (E), pp. 125-27, reviews the debate on the 'Pulzeletta' sonnet. Francesco Mazzoni has an excellent essay on 'Brunetto in Dante' as preface to his edition of the Tesoretto (C.75). Though he does not mention BL, Leo Spitzer's 'Note on the Poetic and Empirical "I" in Medieval Authors', Traditio 4 (1946), 414-22, rpt. in his Romanische Literaturstudien 1936-1956, Tübingen: Niemeyer, 1959, pp. 100-12, is certainly relevant to BL's and DA's use of their exiled and pilgrim personae in their poems. See also Imbriani (M), Novati (F). Ubaldini, in his preface to the Tesoretto (C.10), notes that 'Dante imitò lo smarrimento per una selva oscura', while Testa (Da), p. 87, comments that most writers on this topic in the nineteenth century acknowledged DA's borrowing from BL. Brunetto's openness to Arabic and Jewish culture will be reflected in Dante's use of the Libro della Scala and in his friendship with Immanuello Romano who imitates him in L'Inferno e il Paradiso, a cura di Giorgio Battistoni, Firenze: Giuntina, 2000; Giorgio Battistoni, Dante, Verona e la Cultura ebraica, Firenze: Giuntina, 2004.
On Francesco da Barberino, who may be two people, see also U. Marchesini (BgI.7,8) and Degenhart (Ia). Testa also notes (Da), p. 81, that BL influenced Frezzi, Quadriregio, as well as Fazio degli Uberti, Dittamondo (LcI). See the entries in J (Sources) on the Roman de la Rose which also discuss Il fiore and the 'Pulzeletta' sonnet, and Ke. Il fiore.  A partial explanation of DA's wish to punish BL, who influenced him so strongly, may be found by applying Harold Bloom's Freudian concept of the 'Anxiety of Influence' (Anxiety of Influence: A Theory of Poetry, London: Oxford University Press, 1973).

LaII. Francesco da Barberino

In Francesco da Barberino and Dante Alighieri, we witness the continuum of text and illumination from Alfonso el Sabio and BL. See also bibliography in (I) Art; Bertoni (E. ), pp. 313-14; Bolton Holloway (E. ), pp. 301-302, 310. In holographs and other contemporary documents, Francesco is 'de Barberino'. It is now the custom to write his name with 'da', and I have accepted this practice. In relation to Skinner (F. ), Fenzi (LaII.  ), Prandi (LaII. ), is it possible that Francesco da Barberino, who died in Florence in 1348, influenced the frescoes by way of BL's Tesoro in Siena's Palazzo Pubblico, for he wrote verses on Simone Martini's Sienese Maestà painted in the Palazzo Pubblico in 1315, and whose 1337 program by Ambrogio Lorenzetti is similar to that designed by Francesco da Barberino in Treviso, 1308, and to that he had earlier witnessed Giotto paint in Padua, 1304-1305?

Gives Pier delle Vigne-like letters from Viennese MS 3530, written from Florence, 1313, to the Emperor Henry of Luxembourg,  and to the Doge of Venice Giovanni Soranzo, in the style that BL taught to both Francesco da Barberino and DA.

See Deginhart (Ia) for likeness of Barberino's Documenti d'amore illuminations to those in Strozziano 146, Il Tesoretto (Ba.1). See also the tomb of Bishop Antonio degli Orsi in the Duomo, Florence, which Barberino designed and Tino da Camaino executed, and which is similar in style to Documenti d'amore illuminations. Davidsohn notes he is 'ser Francesco di ser Neri da Barberino'. A 'ser Francesco di ser Nardi de Barberino' is scribe of DA, DC and commentary, MSS, including one with BL, Tesoretto (Ba.3, BgI.4, LbIIIA.4, LbIIIA.11). Francesco da Barberino signs himself 'Franciscus de Barberino' in his letters and in the Trivulziano MS.

Chapter CCLXXXII, CCLXXXIII has interpolations from Tresor on government of a city by a copyist, likely on Cyprus, describing Assises de la Haut Cour and Assises de la Cour des Bourgeois of Godfrey of Bouillon's government in Outremer. BL may also have influenced Jean d'Antioch. We recall there are early Tresor MSS with possible Outremer provenance, Bodleian Douce (AbI.22), perhaps from Acre, Bibliothèque Nationale fr. 2024 (AbI.73), said by Segre-Amar to be Outremer, while Ferrara (BbI.31) speaks of Jerusalem pilgrimage.

M. Biography and Chronology

The family of Brunetto Bonacorsi Latino came from La Lastra or Lastra alla Loggia, nearby Fiesole, where his father and brother Michael worked in the Bishop of Fiesole's Curia. The church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Florence has a monument to BL and his family that would originally have been in the cemetery surrounding Santa Maria Reparata. It consists of a column (perhaps in recognition of his notarial sign, a column and fountain?), upon which is a shield with six roses, arms given to his son at Naples. A later inscription by the tomb speaks of him in Latin as the teacher of Dante and Guido Cavalcanti. F. Villani gives a Latin vita. So also does Bandini's Catalogus (BgI). Davidsohn (F) and Carmody (C.63) are especially good on dates in connection with BL. Carmody, p. xvi. from Schirrmacher (M), notes that BL would have visited Alfonso el Sabio not at Toledo but at Seville or Còrdoba. See, above all, Sundby (E). LbIIIA, early commentaries on Inferno XV, frequently give biographical material on BL, though sometimes this is subject to distortion. However, Giovanni Villani's Cronica may be trusted. Harting (M) discusses a letter from Bar-sur-Aube. While this, like the Vatican letter from Arras, is genuine, it is important to view with suspicion the flurry of material on BL in Gentlemen's Monthly Magazine (1802), published in order to raise the value of the MS that became Oxford, Douce 319 (BbI.22). Raccolta di rime antiche toscane (C.18), I.105, publishes a charming sonnet on the death of BL, speaking of him as a pilgrim and likewise the mourning sonneteer.

See also section F, and the following individual entries: Schiaffini (F), Zannoni (C.19), pp. vi-xxviii, Sundby (E), Wieruszowski (C.71), Davidsohn (F), Scherillo (E). Lives of Dante likewise note that he was a student of BL. See, for instance, Raccolta (C.18), p. 5. The most important dates: birthdate unknown; Alfonso elected Emperor, though election not ratified, 1257; Battle of Montaperti, 1260; BL in Spain and France, 1260-67; Battle of Benevento, 1267; Florence Guelf again, 1267; BL, Chancellor for Florence, 1272-74, death, 1294.

N. Doubtful Works

G. Villani (F, III.22) lists as BL's: 'la Rettorica di Tullio . . .il buono e utile libro detto Tesoro, e il Tesoretto, e la chiave del Tesoro, e più altri libri in filosofia, e de' vizi e di virtù'. G. Villani seems to suggest the separately circulating Nichomachean Ethics translation from Aristotle, the Treatise on Four Virtues, and the Fiore di filosafi e di molti savi are likewise BL's, or at least publsihed by him.

The two works that came to be ascribed to BL, Il mare amoroso and Il pataffio, are no longer considered to be his. Both of these are in D'Ancona, Bacci, Manuale (E). Tiraboschi (E), IV.442-43, Gaiter (C.44), p. xiv, note first attributions. Riccardian 2908 (Ba.16) contains Il mare amoroso and Il tesoretto. Il pataffio is found with Il tesoretto in Laurenziano Plut. 90 inf. 47 (Ba.11). Scherillo doubted authenticity of La rettorica (E). Maggini first doubted authenticity of letter about Abbot Tesauro, then reversed himself (Testa, Da). It is ascribed to BL in one MS (Bd.21). It has been suggested that the Fiore sonnets are BL's (Muner, Armour), though this is unlikely. The Chronicle (N) is, perhaps, BL's. See also Kf. Il Fiore.

Gives text of MS, Firenze, Biblioteca Nazionale II.IV. Decides it is not BL's as it ends after his dates. However, it is characteristic for a chronicle to be continued by others. See Wieruszowski (F), p. 313, on it as BL's work with Ghibelline continuation. Text discusses Buondelmonte murder, battle between Donati and Cavalcanti, tale of Ugolino, which notes they all died of hunger/cannibalism, pp. 224.25, 236, 239. This material rpbl. in Alfredo Schiaffini, Testi fiorentini del Dugento e dei primi del Trecento, Firenze, Sansoni, 1906, rpt 1926, pp. 82-150, and P. Villari (F).

N.11. Padula, Antonio. BL e 'Il pataffio'. Milan: Albrighi, 1921.
An utterly mad book. Il pataffio is a scurrilous terza rima poem. Padula believes it is BL's. But see G. Villani (F146), II, 176 & 181, who gives the coq-à-l'âne verses, similar to Il pataffio in style, by means of which Farinata dissuaded Siena from razing Florence to the ground after the Battle of Montaperti. More work needs to be done in this area.

Believes author to be Richard de Fournival. Nowhere mentions BL ascription. See account of scholarship, pp. 508-11, for further references.

O. Lost Works

See Scherillo (E) on statement that BL translated Boethius into Italian, p.130, n.1. See also Antoine Thomas about Consolation in French translation by an Italian in 'MSS des ducs de Milan (AgIII). Bono Giamboni also is associated with Boethius. Nannucci (C.49), p. 297, supposes Villani meant 'Tesoretto ch'é la chiave de Tesoro'. Of the list given by Giovanni Villani of works written by BL the only ones lost are the 'chiave del Tesoro', unless it be the Tesoretto, and the 'Libri de' vizi e delle virtudi', unless it be Tresor II in its Italian translation.

P. Recommended Works

For an introduction to BL the following texts which use primary material are recommended: Bolton Holloway (C.85, C.96, E ); Chabaille (C.39); Carmody (C.63); Davidsohn (F); Dole (E); Fauriel (E); Jauss (D); Maggini (C.77); Marigo (G); Mattalía (E); Mazzoni (C.75, E); Mazzotta (F); Scherillo (E); Sundby (E); Wieruszowski (C.71); Zannoni (C.19), while Ceva (E); Kay (LbIV); Pézard (LBIV) are less useful. A critical national edition of BL's major Italian writings is much to be desired.
