local voice in a spirited 1450 defence of Cosimo de' Medici that set his 'magnificence' on an individual and largely secular foundation. Peter Howard, however, overturns this concept and argues persuasively not only that Florentines were discussing the virtue of 'magnificence' decades earlier, but also that it was mendicant preachers working with medieval texts who took the lead. He points out that Antonino Pierozzi (a Dominican friar who became Florentine archbishop and was eventually canonized) in his sermons of the 1420s articulated concepts of 'magnificence' that he later developed in his influential Summa. To do so, Howard carefully reconstructs the concept of 'magnificence' by tracing its development through Antoninus's texts and his mendicant career. As a result, the origins of Florentine public discourse on magnificence are decisively relocated from the 1450s to the 1420s, and from a largely secular to a distinctly religious context.
