Summary expansion
Also included are paraphrases in verse of the Apostles' Creed, and the Ave Maria, and four additional lines of verse demonstrating the utility of the new letters introduced by Trissino. According to the New Advent Catholic Encyclopedia, Trissino, for clearness, "proposed that in writing Italian certain new characters (derived from the Greek alphabet) are adopted to show the difference between open and close e and o and voiced and voiceless s and z."
