Silva, Miguel da
Miguel da Silva played a seminal role in transmitting diverse facets of Italian humanist thought and scholarship to Portugal. The foundation for his mediating role was primarily his scholarly dialogue with writers, architects, and artists in Italy and Portugal. Pursuit of his wide-ranging scholarly interests was combined with his diplomatic, political, and ecclesiastical roles as Portuguese ambassador to the Holy See, first minister to John III of Portugal, and finally cardinal during the papacy of Paul III.
