Marsilio Ficino (1433-99), "the great Florentine Platonist and one of the most learned and influential thinkers of the Renaissance...Destined for a medical career by his father, a doctor in the service of the Medici family, he acquired, in addition to much medical learning, a rare mastery of Plato, Aristotle, and later Greek philosophy...While the depth of his technical understanding of later Platonism has rarely been equaled (his works of translation and interpretation bear witness to an enlightened and dedicated scholarship), his original philosophical, theological, and magical speculations constitute one of the great monuments of Renaissance thought and were enormously and diversely influential." - The Oxford Companion to Italian Literature.
