New Directory Entry: Olympia Fulvia Morata


Olympia Fulvia Morata (1525-1555) was an Italian German philosopher.

Her talent was evident at an early age, when at only three years old she could recite the works of Cicero in Latin. Her father encouraged her interest in classical studies, and she attained a perfect mastery of Latin and Greek at the age of twelve, as well as an extensive knowledge of the liberal arts. Morata was hailed as a child prodigy and received a first-rate education at the court of Ferrara under Princess Renée, where she was appointed companion and study partner to Princess Anna.
