The relevance of the environment of the late medieval and Renaissance court, not only as a social and political context but also as an important hermeneutic criterion, is central for the understanding of a number of fifteenth-century scientific-philosophical texts. This central significance of the court environment is especially evident from the perspective of an examination of both speculative and practical results of developments in physiognomy during this period that are reflected in Michele Savonarola’s Speculum phisionomie (1442).
