Manifesto is derived from the Italian word manifesto, itself derived from the Latin manifestum, meaning clear or conspicuous. Its first recorded use in English is from 1620, in Nathaniel Bent‘s translation of Paolo Sarpi‘s History of the council of Trent: “To this citation he made answer by a Manifesto” (p 102). Similarly, “They were so farre surprized with his Manifesto, that they would never suffer it to be published” (p 103)[1]
