Federico Borromeo committed the literary legacy of his preachings to I sacri ragionamenti . The homiletic corpus contains manuscripts and preliminary study materials that reveal the author’s intellectual laboratory, based on an impressively structured memory, and aimed at constructing a «Christian philosophy» of encyclopaedic nature. This cultural conception illuminates the universe of thought of high ecclesiastics with a humanistic background in the Age of the Counter Reformation.
