Hieronymus Angerianus

Hieronymus Angerianus

Hieronymus Angerianus (Gerolamo or Girolamo Angeriano) (1475-1535) was an influential Italian neo-Latin poet from Apulia. He retired at a young age from the life of the Neapolitan court, to the family estates at Ariano de Puglia [Davide Canfora, "Cukture and Power in Naples from 1450 to 1650", p. 89, in Martin Gosman, Alasdair A. MacDonald, Arie Johan Vanderjagt (editors),"Princes and Princely Culture, 1450-1650" (2003).]

His "Erotopaegnion", an epigram collection, was published in 1512 in Florence. He was published in 1582 in the "Poetae Tres Elegantissimi" (Paris), with Joannes Secundus and Michelle Marullo.
