Description

Nicolas of Cusa was closely engaged with the papacy from his time at the Council of Basel (1431-1447) to his death as a cardinal in 1464. This session will place Cusanus in a context which combines Church politics with cultural developments of the Italian Renaissance. Rick Serina and Christopher Bellitto will address the political aspects, including Cusanus’ role in the College of Cardinals. Il Kim and Luke Bancroft will address the cultural context. The cardinals, as princes of the Church, built palaces in styles fashionable in the fifteenth century. The popes employed humanists, some of them very prominent, who had contact with the prelates of the curia, including as employers of their talents.
