Caption: Giovanni Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494), Italian philosopher. Pico was born into an aristocratic family. He was a precocious child and was tutored in Latin and Greek. He is best known for his '900 Theses', published in the 'Oration on the Dignity of Man', which he challenged anyone to debate with him in public. This was treated as heresy by the Pope and Pico was forced to flee to France. Toward the end of his life he renounced humanism, leading to rumours that his secretary poisoned him. Artwork from the 1615 Italian edition of 'De humana physiognomonia' (On Human Physiognomy, 1586) by Italian scholar Giambattista della Porta.
