The different letters found in book show a representation of the important of academic recognition in Renaissance Italy. Scholars wrote to each other back and forth to recognize each others works and also to promote themselves. one argument between Poggio and Valla. This argument, which appears in a large portion of the letters, shows the correspondence of all sides except for Poggio. We can see the side of Valla, trying to gain leverage by winning the favor of Barbaro. We also see the idea from Barbaro that philosopher’s quarrels are not worth the effort and potential wasted. What we can take from these letters between scholars (and sometimes Pope), is that the network of learned men in renaissance Italy allowed a level of connectivity between the correspondents that allowed for expansions of their own knowledge and also essentially bragging rights. Although finding meaning in each letter is difficult, collectively it allows us to analyze the correspondence between the educated and what their motives at the time may have been. We see in numerous cases the mentioning of being promoted, or even being gifted work opportunities under the papacy.
