Francesco de’ Vieri II was a proponent of Platonism, who aimed to reconcile pagan thought with Catholic theology. Most of his printed works were written in the vernacular and include meditations on Plato’s theology, a treatment of Aristotelian meteorology, and lectures on ethics, love, and literature. He taught at Pisa and gave lectures at the Accademia Fiorentina.
