Marguerite de Navarre : mother of the Renaissance by Patricia Francis Cholakian( )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sister to the king of France, queen of Navarre, gifted writer, religious reformer, and patron of the arts - in her many roles, Marguerite de Navarre (1492-1549) was one of the most important figures of the French Renaissance. In this, the first major biography in English, Patricia F. Cholakian and Rouben C. Cholakian draw on her writings to provide a vivid portrait of Marguerite's public and private life. Freeing her from the shadow of her brother Francois I, they recognize her immense influence on French politics and culture, and they challenge conventional views of her family relationships." "The authors highlight Marguerite's considerable role in advancing the cause of religious reform in France - her support of vernacular translations of sacred works, her denunciation of ecclesiastical corruption, her founding of orphanages and hospitals, and her defense and protection of persecuted reformists. Had this plucky and spirited woman not been sister to the king, she would most likely have ended up at the stake. Though she remained a devout Catholic, her theological poem Miroir de l'ame pecheresse, a mystical summa of evangelical doctrine that was viciously attacked by conservatives, remains to this day an important part of the Protestant corpus."--Jacket
Selected writings : a bilingual edition by Marguerite( )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and French, Middle and held by 1,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marguerite de Navarre (1492-1549) was the sister and wife to kings and a pivotal influence in sixteenth-century France. An astute politician and diligent humanist, she was a champion of gender equality and the evangelical reform movement, which recognized that the clergy was more concerned with maintaining the church's power than ministering to the faithful. As the years passed and the glitter of life at court waned, however, Marguerite came to realize her true vocation: writing." "Selected Writings brings together a representative sampling of Marguerite s varied writings, most of it never before translated into English, enabling Anglophone readers to enjoy the full breadth of her work for the first time. From verse letters and fables to mythological-pastoral tales, from spiritual songs to a selection of novellas from the Heptameron, the wide range of works included here will reveal Marguerite de Navarre to be one of the most important writers - male or female - of sixteenth-century France"--Jacket

Marguerite de Navarre (1492-1549) : Mother of the Renaissance by Patricia Francis Cholakian( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sister to the king of France, queen of Navarre, gifted writer, religious reformer, and patron of the arts--in her many roles, Marguerite de Navarre (1492-1549) was one of the most important figures of the French Renaissance. In this, the first major biography in English, Patricia F. Cholakian and Rouben C. Cholakian draw on her writings to provide a vivid portrait of Marguerite's public and private life.

Though she remained a devout catholic, her theological poem Miroir de l'âme pécheresse, a mystical summa of evangelical doctrine that was viciously attacked by conservatives, remains to this day an important part of the Protestant corpus. Marguerite, along with her brother the king, was a key architect and animator of the refined entertainments that became the hallmark of the French court. Always eager to encourage new ideas, she supported many of the illustrious writers and thinkers of her time. Moreover, uniquely for a queen, she was herself a prolific poet, dramatist, and prose writer and published a two-volume
