Oration “Suscepturi” of Pope Pius II (18 June 1464, Rome). 5th version. (Orations of Enea Silvio Piccolomini / Pope Pius II; 76)

Abstract

In spite of the Duke of Burgundy’s failure to appear in person to participate in the crusade against the Turks, Pope Pius II decided to go ahead as planned. On 18 June 1464, he left Rome, mortally ill, to go to Ancona from where a crusade fleet would sail against the Turks. But he died on 15 August, at the moment when the Venetian fleet finally came in sight. Afterwards the crusade collapsed. During the ceremony of departure from Rome, held at Saint Peter’s Basilica, the pope gave the oration “Suscepturi”, in which he motivated his personal participation in the crusade and asked for the intercession of the Virgin Mary and the saints.
