The volume contains studies by eleven distinguished scholars, concerning changes in ethical and religious consciousness during this important era of Western culture--themes consonant with the scholarship of Charles Trinkaus. 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 Trinkaus by Paul Oskar Kristeller and concludes with bibliographies of Trinkaus's publications and of works on Valla in English (Pauline Watts and Thomas Izbicki).Reviews"This is traditional intellectual history at its finest: a serious conversation about fundamental changes in Western thought and culture, informed by profound and accurate learning."--James Hankins, The Journal of Ecclesiastical History, 1994."... worthwile reading for the specalist."--Manfred Hoffmann, Religous Studies Review, 1994."... the editors of this volume have devised a recipe for preparing a successful Festschrift. The result reflects favorably on all concerned."--Craig Kallendorf, Renaissance Quaterly.
