I haven't remembered as much as I would have liked. I am sorry to report that the internet is a great facilitator for me too; although it does admittedly help to know where you're looking. I wouldn't really recommend Cicero. Dante is another story. PS. Do you know the 'China Illustrata' of Ricci's near-contemporary and fellow Jesuit, Athanasius Kircher? If not I would recommend getting hold of a copy. (I think there's a modern edition for about 20 pounds.)
