Caption: Rodolphus Agricola (1443-1485), Dutch humanist scholar. Born Roelof Huusman near Groningen, he was educated there and at Louvain. Gifted at translating Latin, he was one of the first northern European scholars to have a good understanding of Greek. He travelled widely through Italy, meeting influential humanist thinkers of the time. His work 'De inventione dialectica' (finished 1479, published 1515) was a major influence on Renaissance humanists. Agricola's death at a young age is lamented in the Latin inscription at bottom. The circular inscription refers to his birth in Baflo (in the Ommelanden region) and his work as a professor in Heidelberg.
