Title : Isotta Nogarola umanista, monaca domestica e pellegrina al Giubileo (1450) [Isotta Nogarola, a Veronese humanist, visited Rome during the Jubilee Year 1450 and delivered a discourse before Pope Nicholas V. At home, Isotta combined a nun-like religious life with the study of letters. In her Jubilee pilgrimage and her writings, Isotta revealed a conservative approach to the church and especially to the papacy. This is rooted in her elite upbringing in Verona.].
