During the Middle Ages, the Papal Curia was the most important addressee for learned Latin poetry within Europe. Much of it was unsolicited; authors address their works to the Apostolic See, they dedicate their writings to individual popes and glorify them in panegyrics. The study examines the expectations and aims associated with such poetry and to what extent the Curia responded to these poetic offerings - perhaps with material sponsorship for the authors. For this, it develops the paths of communication, the places of performance and modes of presenting this panegyric poetry.
