Rezensionen
'These are indeed the essential readings for anyone who wantsto understand how contemporary scholarship has recast andreinterpreted this pivotal period in human history. Wide rangingand provocative, this exploration of the Italian Renaissancefascination with the Ancients, God, and strong leaders isunderpinned by a sophisticated appreciation for the fragilefoundations of society in gender relations, the intimacy of familylife, and the bonds of neighborhood and community.' EdwardMuir, Northwestern University

'This volume brings together classic, brilliant articlesthat were formative of present understandings of ItalianRenaissance culture. Given Paula Findlen's lively, engagingintroduction, it will be an invaluable source for teaching.'Carol Lansing, University of California, Santa Barbara
