Giovanni Benedetto

suo (tam Batavice quam Italice et Latine edito) De Ioanne Pascolo poeta latino, ubi contenditur«summum fuisse latinistam Pascolum».


ABSTRACT – J.J. Hartman’s judgment of Pascoli as «the greatest Latinist of our times» is to

school continued to admire and cultivate the humanistic tradition of Latin composition, and
the production of Latin poems.
