9780465068005: Renaissance Lives: Portraits Of An Age

With Renaissance Lives, Theodore K. Rabb revives a tradition of writing that was often practiced by the historians of that astounding era: to tell the story of an age by examining the lives of those who lived it. Rabb's subjects are all people who felt change gather speed around them: from Titian and Galileo to Catherine de' Medici and John Milton. In their stories we see, above all, the powers of ideas to liberate, to enthrall, to provoke, and to resolve conflict.Renaissance Lives shows us the struggle — with its grave disappointments but also its extraordinary achievements that accompanied the creation of the world we recognize as our own.

About the Author:

Theodore K. Rabb is a professor of Renaissance and early modern history at Princeton University. He has written or edited more than twenty books, including Renaissance Lives.

From School Library Journal:

YA-A companion to the television series, this book's immediacy and readability make these stories of Renaissance men and women accessible to modern readers. Each of the 15 lives examined here exemplifies the enormous diversity of that era. The book focuses on representatives of social types to show the age in a microcosm, and yet each of the individuals profiled is larger than life. They include not only the expected "Renaissance Man" Sir Walter Raleigh, but also less well-known individuals such as Ralph Josselin, a Protestant minister whose diaries give a detailed account of life as a country vicar. Gluckel of Hamlin typifies the limited role allowed to women and to Jews at the time; Artemisia Gentileschi exemplifies the courage and determination required of female artists; and Catherine de'Medici represents the rulers whose patronage of the arts is most often associated with this great age. The text is accompanied by black-and-white and full-color plates that depict the works of the great masters of the times, portraits of the subjects, and examples of the subjects' work. Educators who wish to show how economics, science, art, philosophy, and religion are interrelated will find this volume especially insightful.
