Abstract

Ambrogio Leone (1458/1459–1525), Italian humanist and physician, friend to Erasmus of Rotterdam, studied in Padua where he graduated in philosophy and medicine and then returned to Nola; his most important works are a historical treatise about his place of birth (De Nola, 1514) and a polemical work against Averroes (Castigationes in Averroem, first edition 1517).
