Sample text

Vico is appointed Professor of Rhetoric of the University of Naples, a post he holds until . In his capacity as Professor he delivers his First Inaugural Oration. He is elected to the Academy of Medinaceli. Vico marries Teresa Caterina Destito, by whom he has eight children. Vico’s Second Inaugural Oration. The War of the Spanish Succession begins.

The reasons for this are twofold.
