Pietro Bembo: Lover, Linguist, Cardinal by Carol Kidwell

Kidwell (American U. of Paris) offers a full biography of Bembo (1470-1547). He was a poet, a historian, a linguist who established a national language for Italy, a courtier, Latin secretary to Leo X, a cardinal, and a likely successor to Paul III when he died. Having taken vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience in the order of St. John of Jerusalem, she says, he proceeded to start a family. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
