Abstract

This article describes the biography and early Latin works of Ortensio Lando (ca. 1512 – ca. 1556/59). Lando, a religious refugee from about 1530 onwards, has remained virtually unknown in Germanic lands, yet his life and works are remarkable. His early Latin works, »Cicero relegatus et Cicero revocatus« (1534), »Forcianae Quaestiones « (1535) and »Desiderii Erasmi Roterodami funus« (1540), are unique in the manner in which they seamlessly blend contemporary literary styles with classical tradition and topical religious questions. Lando was the Italian author of his time »who had most progressed on the way to Protestantism«, as Manfred E. Welti pointed out.
