An Advising…


Merula denigrating his master, Filelfo: “But if anyone is in doubt about these, let him go to the Greek exemplars, and let him examine them more carefully than that GAPING WHITE ARSE, who is by far the most stubborn of schoolmasters, more obstinate than combative in his opinions; for he does not know how to fight, nor can he defend himself. He was always a slave to sloth and licentiousness, a preceptor of frivolous learning, MORE OFTEN A GROPER OF HARLOTS THAN OF BOOKS.” (in Meserve, Empires of Islam, pg. 146).
