The one scuola grande that actually managed to increase its wealth during this period was the recently founded Scuola di San Rocco. After the defeat at Agnadello in 1509 San Rocco was required to pay a levy of only 100 ducats, just half as much as the other scuole, ‘because it is poor’. Yet during the wartime years between 1509 and 15 16 as many as sixty new endowment trusts were set up in its favour, including five major bequests. 84 The Scuola di San Rocco had been instituted in 1478, during an epidemic of plague, under the patronage of the saint who was supposed to give protection from outbreaks of pestilence. In 1485 the saint’s body was brought to Venice from Germany, and from this time onwards the cult of San Rocco in Venice grew rapidly. By 1489 the Scuola was large enough to be admitted to the ranks of the scuole grandi by the Council of Ten. In the same year a church dedicated to San Rocco was begun on a site leased from the Franciscan friars behind the rear apses of the Frari. The architect of the church, since much altered, was the proto to the Procurators of Saint Mark, Bartolomeo Bon. In 1 5 16 the same architect was appointed proto to the Scuola di San Rocco, which had by now raised sufficient funds to begin a grand new building next to the church fig.
