Renaissance Humanism
By

Rating
"By far the best collection of sources to introduce readers to Renaissance humanism in all its many guises. What distinguishes this stimulating and useful anthology is the vision behind it: King shows that Renaissance thinkers had a lot to say, not only about the ancient world-one of their habitual passions-but also about the self, how civic experience was configured, the arts, the roles and contributions of women, the new science, the `new' world, and so much more." -Christopher S. Celenza, Johns Hopkins University "A rich and coherent collection of primary sources spanning the 14th to the 17th centuries and the breadth of Europe. . . . Teachers will welcome this text for classes on the Renaissance and intellectual history. Students will benefit from King's thoughtful introductions to each author and work as well as suggestions for further reading and research in the appendix." -Nancy Bisaha, Vassar College

Especially welcome is the attention given to women and other worlds. King is a lively and succinct writer who knows how to draw her readers into the big picture while entertaining them with the scintillating detail." -- Jane Tylus, New York University
