Unsure? Ask an Expert!

Gasparo Contarini was a 16th-century Italian bishop who was an important catalyst in communication lines between Catholics and Protestants following the Protestant Reformation. While not a proclaimed Catholic, Contarini was placed in the position as Cardinal by Pope Paul III much in part because of his political influence. As a result of his position, he wrote ‘De Magistratibus’.

 

‘De magistratibus et republica venetorum’ was written as a way of clarifying and describing Venice’s system of government. Scholars agree that Contarini wrote this work for foreign dignitaries with hopes of building the mystique and exclusivity of Venetian politics.

 

This 1544 edition is a first Froben edition, published in Basel by Nikolaus Episcopius.
