Portuguese Language and Literature: Humanities and Epistolography
A citizen of the world, in constant desire for personal, scientific, literary and human enrichment, the humanist finds in letters a privileged way to quench his ever-thirsty thirst for knowledge. Pedro Sanches, as his biographer tells us in the Corpus Illustrium Poetarum Lusitanorum, encouraged and solicited contact with learned men, which only reiterated his humanist vein of "literary commerce", entwined through the epistolary path. A reading of the letters of the humanist proves to be a privileged instrument of knowledge of the author's personality, as happened, for example, with Cicero.
