Table of contents
This study of the foremost patristic scholar in 15th-century Florence is based almost exclusively on manuscript letters and incunabula in Greek, Latin, and Italian. The influence of the revival of patristic studies on the meaning and purpose of Renaissance learning emerges as one of the original considerations in this book which should be of interest to humanists, generally, but also to art historians, intellectual history researchers, theologians, and philosophers.
