"Sortilegio": Cola Rienzi and the Blasphemy of Documentation.
Di Renzo, Anthony
Journal of Technical Writing and Communication, v27 n3 p225-35 1997
Pinpoints Cola Rienzi as an important figure in the history of professional writing. States that he combined a passion for classical rhetoric and literature with extensive training in legal documentation to create and sustain a messianic regime in 14th-century Italy by imitating ancient Roman memos and reports in his written edicts.
