The Renaissance in the Streets, Schools, and Studies: Essays in Honour of Paul F. Grendler
Edited by Konrad Eisenbichler and Nicholas Terpstra
This volume brings together essays on the intellectual, cultural and social history of the Italian Renaissance, areas of inquiry that Paul F. Grendler has done so much to develop through the decades. The various authors address issues in the diffusion of Renaissance culture through a broad range of formal and informal means, including schools, plays, public rituals, and disciplinary tribunals. In so doing, they illustrate how the values, pursuits, and dreams of the studia humanitatis and of a broad-ranging Christian-humanist reform took hold and flourished through interplay of formal and informal means of spreading ideas in the Renaissance and on to the present day.
