W.479, Panegyricus Leonardo Lauredano


This manuscript is a ceremonial copy of a panegyric (a speech or text of praise) in honor of Leonardo Lauredano (1436-1521), Doge of Venice from 1501 until his death in 1521. It was pronounced by Sigusmundus Burgus, a knight and lawyer from the city of Cremona. Folio 2r is elaborately illuminated with a Roman-style inscription of gold letters on blue ground that dates the panegyric to April 21, 1503. That this manuscript is an official, ceremonial document is confirmed by the placement of the Lion of St. Mark, a symbol of the Republic of Venice, in the upper margin above the inscription.
