Medieval and Renaissance Humanism: Rhetoric, Representation and Reform

This volume discusses humanist aspects of medieval and Renaissance intellectual life and thought and of their appropriation by modern history and literature. It charts the humanist representations of the scholarly enterprise, the self-representation of the intellectual, the representation of individuality in humanist literature, as well as the problem field of Renaissance humanism as an ideological programme of educational, moral, and political reform. The volume is particularly useful for medievalists and Renaissance scholars, as well as for historians specialised in the history of medieval and Renaissance art, medicine music and education.

Cachey, Jr. , Karl Enenkel, Catherine Kavanagh, John Kerr, Christel Meier-Staubach, Marinus Burcht Pranger, Bert Roest, Catrien Santing, Nancy van Deusen, Charlotte Ward, and Robert Zwijnenberg.
