About this title:

Synopsis: Challenging the familiar view of Francesco Petrarca as the ‘father of humanism’, this book offers a comprehensive re-interpretation of Petrarch’s debt to the theology of St. Augustine, and advances a provocative new reading of the development of humanism in Italy.

About the Author: Alexander Lee, Ph.D. (2009) in History, University of Edinburgh, is a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Luxembourg and the University of Warwick. His research concentrates on the intellectual history of the early Renaissance in Italy.

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Despite the high regard in which Francesco Petrarca (1304-74) held St. Augustine, scholars have been inclined to view Augustine's impact on the content of Petrarch's thought rather lightly. Wedded to the ancient classics, and prioritising literary imitation over intellectual coherence, Petrarch is commonly thought to have made inconsistent use of St. Augustine's works. Adopting an entirely fresh approach, however, this book argues that Augustine's early writings consistently provided Petrarch with the conceptual foundations of his approach to moral questions, and with a model for integrating classical precepts into a coherent Christian framework. As a result, this book offers a challenging re-interpretation of Petrarch's humanism, and offers a provocative new interpretation of his role in the development of Italian humanism.
