PLATINA, BARTHOLOMAEUS SACCHI DE. 1421-1481.
De vitis ac gestis summorum pontificum ad sua usque tempora. Cologne: Jasper Gennepaeus, 1551.

"Platina's popes moved in the field of politics like worldly rulers. By including profane historians among his sources, he was the first author who freed general church history from its religious isolation ... his scepticism with regard to medieval legends was in some cases influential (as in the case of 'Pope Joan')" (Stefan Bauer, "Bartolomeo Sacchi (Platina)," Repertorium Pomponianum). Adams P1419.
