Description Th is article presents the first detailed account of Giorgio Benigno Salviati’s discussion
of the will written in Urbino during the mid-1470s and the early 1480s. A Franciscan
friar and a prominent professor of theology and philosophy, Salviati was a prolific
author and central figure in the circles of Cardinal Bessarion in Rome and of Lorenzo
de’ Medici in Florence. Th is article focuses on his defense of the Scotist theory of the
will. It considers its fifteenth-century context, in which both humanist and scholastic
thinkers dealt with the question of the intellect and the will. While basing himself
partly on authorities such as Aristotle, Augustine, and Th omas Aquinas, Salviati is
clearly aware of the novelty of his theory, and its important implications for ethics and
theology.
