Product description

This volume contains studies by 11 distinguished scholars, concerning changes in ethical and religious consciousness during the Renaissance - themes consonant with the scholarship of Charles Trinkhaus. It begins with three general essays: the Renaissance discovery of human creativity (William Bouwsma); the Renaissance and Western pragmatism (Jerry Bentley) and the new philosophical perspective (F. Edward Cranz). The remaining contributors deal with similar issues in Petrarch (Ronald Witt); Nicholas of Cusa (Morimichi Watanabe); Lorenzo Valla (Salvatore Camporeale); Marsilio Ficino (Michael Allen and Brian Copenhaver); Savonarola (Donald Weinstein); Battista Carioni (Paul Grendler); and Calvin (Heiko Oberman). The volume opens with a tribute to Trinkhaus by Paul Oskar Kristeller and concludes with bibliographies of Trikhaus's publications and of works on Valla in English (Pauline Watts and Thomas Izbicki).
