Abstract

The treatise Cosmographiae introductio, published in 1507, contains several quotations from classical authors (Vergil, Ovid, Boethius, Theodosius, Dionysius Periegetes etc.), who are always presented as auctoritates for both the geographical description and the scientific context. This paper analyses various cases of these citations and particularly the use of the auctores, and it concludes by explaining the dialogue between ancient and modern elements in this Renaissance work.
