The Panizzi Lectures 1990 - Erasmus, Colet and More: The early Tudor Humanists and their Books.

£4.99

Product description

In this highly illustrated study, the published record of the sixth series of Panizzi Lectures given at The British Library in 1990, Professor Trapp provides a detailed survey of the manuscripts and printed books that the early Tudor Humanists - Desiderius Erasmus, John Colet and Thomas More above all - wrote, had written or printed for them, owned, read and used.

While not ignoring the bibliographical concerns - the physical make-up, ownership and provenance of the books - the author lays emphasis on the texts themselves, the fuel of intellectual debate and discourse. This was the moment when the Renaissance spirit arrived and flourished briefly in England, when the works of Latin and Greek philosophers and historians were studied alongside the Patristic authors, medieval theologians and contemporary Neo-Platonists, and provided the basis for such major works as Erasmus's Praise of Folly, Colet's New Testament and More's Utopia.

Much is revealed about the nature of early Tudor humanism, and in particular, about its debt to the Erasmus, the 'first European'.

A small bit of the top right of the front cover is missing. Otherwise, this book is in excellent condition throughout.
