The works of Paolo Angelo

Dennis E. Rhodes


NOTHING seems to be recorded about the life of Paolo Angelo, except for the meagre scraps of information which his own books reveal. He was a humble priest of Venice, apparently a member of the Dominican Order, and he had a fanatical hatred of Luther and his doctrines, which he more than once described as being like the croaking of frogs. He is represented in the British Library by three small printed books, which have never been examined thoroughly hitherto, and which have in common the one feature that none of them bears any imprint or date of printing. For two of them the General Catalogue suggests the imprint [Rome?]; but it is my intention in this article to give a full description of each book, in chronological order as I believe they were printed; and to demonstrate, I hope convincingly, that they were all printed in Venice.
