Initially conceived as a praelectio, Angelo Poliziano’s Panepistemon (published in 1492) perfectly embodies the eclecticism that characterizes the cultural fabric of the res publica litterarum of the Laurentian age. Deeply rooted in the classical tradition, it eschews the standardized schemes of similar contemporary academic preambles, and takes instead the form of a short treatise on all forms of human knowledge, theoretical and practical alike. By virtue of the extensive critically grounded Introduction, today’s reader will be able to appreciate in full its relevance as a fundamental contribution to the transmission of antiquity and the extraordinary erudition expressed in the work of this great humanist.
