Synopsis:

The Renaissance burst forth in all its glory around 1500 and spread throughout Europe. This period of great creativity and productivity in the arts and sciences is illuminated in this book through the lives of more than ninety of its illustrious intellectuals, artists, literary figures, scientists, and rulers. Included are such major figures as Lorenzo and Catherine de’ Medici, Leonardo da Vinci, Charles V, Luther, Columbus, Copernicus, and St. Teresa of Ávila, as well as lesser-known characters such as Antonio Rinaldeschi, “gambler and blasphemer”; Louise Labé, “the jousting poetess”; Dick Tarlton, “the queen’s comedian”; Veronica Franco, “courtesan and wordsmith”; and Catena, “rustler, robber, and bandit chief.” 

Each section in this volume marks a chronological stage in Europe’s rebirth, tying the period’s intellectual currents to its political and social concerns and setting the context for the individual biographies. 

Review:

“Well-organized and well-executed.”—Library Journal



“A rare example of a truly useful compendium that offers coverage of some persons not included in other similar works.”—Choice



“The authors are to be commended for what they have . . . accomplished in this valuable collection. It is richly illustrated and will amply serve both students and scholars alike.”—Sixteenth Century Journal

Book Description J Paul Getty Museum, 2011. Condition: New. The Renaissance began in northern Italy around 1400 with a rediscovery of classical antiquity and a new interest in our place in the natural world. As it spread across Europe it took many forms; more a state of mind than a fixed programme, it brought vast political, religious and social change. This superbly illustrated book focuses on 94 individuals - from Leonardo to Luther, and Catherine de' Medici to Copernicus - each of whom embodied and spread a facet of Renaissance culture.
