"The Renaissance created a new vision of womanhood and indeed a 'New Woman', proposes Gaia Servadio in this highly readable and erudite book. In an original and unique take on the Renaissance world, Servadio dates this revolutionary movement not to the traditionally quoted year of 1492 but to the invention of the printing press in 1456, which made books - and hence education - available to women."--Jacket

Motya : unearthing a lost civilization by Gaia Servadio( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gaia Servadio was not the first person to fall under the spell of the tiny island off the coast of Sicily, revealed as the site of one of the great centres of Phoenician civilization. Once a city teeming with over fifteen thousand inhabitants, Motya - just across the Mediterranean from Carthage - was destroyed by the Greeks in 397 BC after an extended siege. Its inhabitants were massacred, its buildings left to rot." "By the late nineteenth century those buildings had long since disappeared under the sands. English amateur archaeologist Joseph Whitaker bought the island and began digging, with the result that Motya has yielded a stream of discoveries - buildings, pottery and statuary - and is now the major source of our knowledge of the Phoenicians." "Motya is the magical story of that discovery."--Jacket
