Abstract

“ORATOR FUTURUS”.FABIAN BIRKOWSKI’S READING OF CICERONIANUS BY PIERRE DE LA RAMÉE

The aim of the article is to analyse the marginalia left by Fabian Birkowski (1566–1636) in a copy of Peter Ramus’s treatise Ciceronianus. The copy has been preserved in the Jagiellonian Library in Kraków (shelfmark St. Dr. 590232 I) and also contains notes by Jan Brożek added a few decades later. In the article I demonstrate how Birkowski used the treatise by the French reformer of rhetoric, when he taught classical languages at the Kraków Academy, and how the image of Cicero as well as the reflections on imitating his style presented in the treatise may have influenced Birkowski’s views on the history and theory of rhetoric.
