Giles was born in Viterbo in 1469 and entered the Augustinian monastery there in June 1488. He ws aged eighteen and had completed his studies of humanities and a course in philosophy. Giles remains a special source for understanding certain aspects of the Renaissance. He played many roles -- orator at the papal court, reforming prior general of the Augustinians, synthesizer -- almost syncretizer -- of certain strains of Renaissance culture. He left behind a large body of work, ranging from practical directives as superior general of a major religious order to the most abstruse speculation on theologoical, historical, and other subjects. Almost every literary genre is represented. This volume contains a revised form of Francis X. Martinís important Cambridge dissertation on Giles, plus suporting materials in the appendices prepared by other scholars.
