The principal manuscript collections include Biblioteca Riccardiana, Florence, MS. 2204 (hereafter BRF 2204), and Biblioteca nazionale centrale di Firenze (hereafter BNF), Magl. XXV.211. Nesi's sermons have been published by Cesare Vasoli, "Giovanni Nesi tra Donato Acciaiuoli Girolamo Savonarola," Memorie domenicane 4 ( 1973): 103-79. Machiavelli's penitential oration was published in Niccolò Machiavelli, Tutte le opere ( Florence: Sansoni, 1929), 778-80. Three of four sermons written by Poliziano have been published in I. del Lungo, Prose volgari inedite e poesie latine e greche edite e inedite di Angelo Ambrogini Poliziano ( Florence, 1867), 3-16. The sermons of Alamanno Rinuccini have been published by Vito Giustiniani, Alamanno Rinuccini: Lettere ed orazioni ( Florence: Sansoni, 1953), 22-23, 46-47, 145-62, 185-87. The surviving sermons represent a small fraction of the total number likely to have been delivered by lay Florentines to confraternities. The statutes of many confraternities required annual sermons on such occasions as Holy Thursday, but sermons survive for only a few confraternities. On sermon requirements, see, for example, the statutes of the Compagnia di S. Paolo, Archivio di Stato di Firenze, Compagnie Religiose Soppresse (hereafter ASF CRS), Capitoli, 29.
