About the Author

Kevin Sharpe was Director of the Centre for Renaissance and Early Modern Studies and Professor of Renaissance Studies at Queen Mary, University of London, UK.


All this is a reminder that Sharpe was a historian still working at the height of his powers, full of energy, enthusiasms and new ideas, and sadly missed by all those who enjoyed his company and were stimulated by his interpretation of the period. -- Richard Cust, University of Birmingham, UK * EHR *
