Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. tienne Dolet (3 August 1509 - 3 August 1546) was a French scholar, translator and printer.He was born in Orl ans. A doubtful tradition makes him the illegitimate son of Francis I; but it is evident that he was at least connected with some family of rank and wealth. From Orl ans he was taken to Paris about 1521, and after studying under Nicolas B rauld, the teacher of Coligny, he proceeded in 1526 to Padua. The death of his friend and master, Simon de Villanova, led him, in 1530, to accept the post of secretary to Jean de Langeac, bishop of Limoges and French ambassador to the republic of Venice; he contrived, however, to attend the lectures of the Venetian scholar Battista Egnazio, and found time to write Latin love poems to a Venetian woman named Elena.show more
