The sermons of Cornelio (or Cornelius) Musso (1511-1574), Italian friar and Bishop of Bitonto, perhaps, the most renowned orator of his day, styled the “Italian Demosthenes”. He was among the first three bishops present at the Council of Trent, where he delivered the inaugural oration, distinguishing himself especially at the debates on justification. In 1560 he was sent as papal legate to Emperor Ferdinand.
