The correspondence of Ioannes Dantiscus (1485-1548), coming from a burgher family in Gdańsk royal scribe and diplomat in the service of Sigismund I Jagiellon and Bona Sforza, Bishop of Kulm (Chełmno) and of Ermland (Warmia), Neo-Latin poet and member of the European respublica litteraria, is one of the largest early modern collections of this kind preserved until the present day. Among more than 650 Dantiscus’ correspondents – rulers, statesmen, diplomats, merchants, bankers, scholars and men of letters – there are such famous and outstanding personalities like Erasmus of Rotterdam, Hernán Cortés or Nicolaus Copernicus.

The present book is a subsequent volume of the printed series Corpus Epistularum Ioannis Dantisci, which is a part of a multi-year project „Registration and Publication of Ioannes Dantiscus’ Correspondence”, including also an on-line edition of his correspondence and other texts.

The volume contains the correspondence (1526-1532) of Ioannes Dantiscus and Alfonso de Valdés, secretary of Emperor Charles V of Habsburg, Spanish humanist, friend of Erasmus of Rotterdam and a close friend of Dantiscus during his missions at the court of Charles V of Habsburg. In addition, the book presents Dantiscus’ correspondence with Juan de Valdés, Alfonso’s brother, and with Mercurino Arborio di Gattinara, Grand Chancellor of Emperor Charles V.

Keywords: Alfonso de Valdés, diplomacy, humanism, Ioannes Dantiscus, Juan de Valdés, Latin letters, Mercurino Arborio di Gattinara, Poland, 16th century.
