5 editions published in 1992 in English and Italian and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Flaptekst] In the past thirty years Giles of Viterbo has become a familiar name to scholars from a variety of disciplines researching the culture of Rome and the Church during the High Renaissance. Because of the attention directed to Giles, we are now much better informed about Renaissance Rome during the early years of the Cinquecento than we have ever been. This means that our understanding of the role Giles played has been redimensioned, and scholars see more clearly that he and the rich cultural diversity he embodied represent in fact only a small portion of the forces at work in Rome during that crucial period of Western history. Giles remains a special source for understanding certain aspects of the Renaissance. The reasons are several. He played many roles - orator at the papal court, reforming prior general of the Augustinians, synthesizer - almost syncretizer - of certain strains of Renaissance culture. He was in significant ways a child of the Renaissance, but medieval influences on him sometimes seem stronger. He knew the mainstream of Ficinian Neoplatonism and Paduan Aristotelianism, but also ardently pursued esoterica. A reformer, he was worlds apart from his most famous subject in the Augustinian Order, Martin Luther. Perhaps most important of all, he left behind a large corpus, in which we find a curious mix ranging from practical directives as superior general of an important religious order to the most abstruse speculation on theological, historical, and other subjects. Almost every literary genre is represented - correspondence, orations and sermons, translation, poetry, official registers, commentaries, and treatises. Whence did current interest in him arise? As the following pages indicate, Giles was not unnoticed before the middle of the twentieth century. In the 1950s scholars like Eugenio Massa and François Secret began to suggest that there was more to Giles than we had heretofore imagined. At about the same time Francis X. Martin was independently preparing at Cambridge University his doctoral dissertation. Shortly thereafter he began to share some of the results of his research in several articles. A turning-point had been reached. From that time forward it was to Father Martin, by now Professor of Medieval History at University College, Dublin, that scholars from around the world first turned for guidance on the until then elusive Giles. Father Martin continued to publish on the subject. Principally through those publications the contours of Giles's career and the location and richness of the sources pertaining to him began to emerge. What we have been missing up to this point, however, has been Frank Martin's Cambridge dissertation, a fundamental instrument for putting the pieces together. The present volume fills that lacuna
