Item Description...
"Humanists and Reformers" portrays two great traditions in human history: the Italian Renaissance and the age of the Reformation. Bard Thompson provides a fascinating survey of these important historical periods under pressure of their own cultural, social, and spiritual experiences, exploring the bonds that held Humanists and Reformers together and the estrangements that drove them apart. In the section devoted to the Italian Renaissance, an opening historiography is followed by accounts of the struggles that underlie the Renaissance, the papacy and the rebuilding of Rome, the growth of capitalism, and the rise of the monarchies and city states. Separate histories of Venice, Milan, and Florence are provided and painters, sculptors, and architects of the Quattrocento and Cinquecento are also given full scope, including close-ups of Michelangelo and Raphael....The section devoted to the age of the Reformation includes coverage of Erasmus and the major figures of the Northern Renaissance; and the Reformers and their thought: Luther, Zwingli, the Anabaptists and Calvin....Throughout this volume Thompson gives special attention to subjects of note from both periods, such as: Castiglione's "Book of the Courtier," the emergence of printing, Andrea Mantegna, Titian and the Venetian painters, Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael's Vatican Stanze, Michelangelo's Medici tombs, art and poetry in early sixteenth-century France, St. Peter's Basilica, and Foxe's Book of Martyrs.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thorough and Friendly  Feb 5, 2001
I have been reading sections of this book for a class in Church History that I am co-teaching this semester, and I love it. Thompson does an inspiring job at making each individual a "real person" for the reader, which is often hard to find in history texts. Also, his in-depth and thorough look at both movements and people never becomes pedantic or tiresome, but rather creates a greater context into which these elements truly make sense. His writing is reachable, clear, humorous - friendly to the casual and professional student of the Reformation. Highly recommended!
