Rome essays

During the Italian Renaissance , a group of humanists affiliated with the Roman Academy formed a sodality to pursue antiquarian interests, celebrating the "birthday of Rome" annually on April 20. In 1468, the Academy was suppressed by Pope Paul II for fomenting "republicanism, paganism , and conspiracy", but the sodality was reinstated about ten years later under Sixtus IV as the Societas Literatorum S. Victoris in Esquiliis ("Literary Society of Saint Victor on the Esquiline "). The reformed group placed itself under the new patronage of saints Victor, Fortunatus , and Genesius , "whose feast day was conveniently proven to coincide with the Palilia ". Their "Palilia" was organized by Pomponio Leto and featured speeches, a communal meal, and a poetry competition. [12]
