Enchanted eloquence : fairy tales by seventeenth-century French women writers( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on unusual fairy tales that have never been translated before and are seminal for understanding the development of the literary fairy tale as genre. French women writers played a central role in the institutionalization of a literary genre in the French civilizing process that had huge ramifications in opera, theater, vaudeville, music, and film. Moreover, their tales influenced other writers of fairy tales in Europe. This book does honor to their creative efforts and provides the basis for further research on the development of the European fairy tales. -- Back Cover

Florence and beyond : culture, society and politics in Renaissance Italy : essays in honour of John M. Najemy( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume celebrates John M. Najemy and his contributions to the study of Florentine and Italian Renaissance history. Over the last three decades, his books and articles on Florentine politics and political thought have substantially revised the narratives and contours of these fields. They have also provided a framework into which he has woven innovative new threads that have emerged in Renaissance social and cultural history. Presented by his many students and friends, the essays aim to highlight his varied interests and to suggest where they may point for future studies of Florence and, indeed, beyond. -- Amazon.com
Sins of the flesh : responding to sexual disease in early modern Europe( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few illnesses in the early modern period carried the impact of the dreaded pox, a lethal sexually transmitted disease usually thought to be syphilis. In the early sixteenth century the disease quickly emerged as a powerful cultural force. Just as powerful were the responses of doctors, bureaucrats, moralists, playwrights, and satirists. These ten essays gauge the impact of sexual disease on early modern society by exploring the ways in which European culture reacted to the presence of a new deadly sexual infection. Articles about scientific and medical responses analyze how physicians incorporated the disease within existing intellectual frameworks. Studies in literary and metaphoric responses examine how early modern writers put images of sexual infection and the diseased body to a range of rhetorical and political uses. Finally, essays about institutional and policing responses chronicle how authorities responded to the crisis and how these public health responses linked up with wider campaigns to police sexuality

Memoirs (1630-1680) by Sophia( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Granddaughter of James I of England, Sophia (1630-1714) began life a penniless princess in exile. She ended it as electress dowager of Hanover. Had she lived two months longer, she would have succeeded to the British crown before her son, George I. In keeping with Sophia's reputation as the era's "most entertaining woman," her memoirs, which she wrote in French, paint a captivating and often humorous portrait of her life as one of Europe's preeminent noblewomen and celebrities. They also recall, with insight and verve, her interactions with leading men and ladies (Charles II, Louis XIV, Queen Christina of Sweden) and long-forgotten bit players (cavaliers, concubines, clerics, and quacks). The memoirs, which recount the first fifty years of Sophia's life, appear here in English for the first time in their entirety. Their publication in this series is particularly timely, as it coincides with the three hundredth anniversary of the Hanoverian succession (2014)."--Publisher's description

The Renaissance in the nineteenth century = Le XIXe siècle renaissant( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in French and English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nineteenth century witnessed rapid economic and social developments, profound political and intellectual upheaval, and startling innovations in art and literature. As Europeans peered into an uncertain future, they drew upon the Renaissance for meaning, precedents, and identity. Many claimed to find inspiration or models in the Renaissance, but as we move across the continent's borders and through the century's decades, we find that the Renaissance was many different things to many different people. This collection brings together the work of sixteen authors who examine the many Renaissances conceived by European novelists and poets, artists and composers, architects and city planners, political theorists and politicians, businessmen and advertisers. The essays fall into three groups: "Aesthetic Recoveries of Strategic Pasts"; "The Renaissance in Nineteenth-Century Culture Wars"; and "Material Culture and Manufactured Memories."
At the centre of the old world : trade and manufacturing in Venice and the Venetian mainland, 1400-1800( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The articles in this volume position Venice and her economy from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century in relation to the larger European and Mediterranean context. In so doing, they engage firmly in a debate with recent historiographical discussions about European peripheries, the role of craft guilds and rural industries, the impact of fashion and demand-driven markets in the process of production specialization, and the emergence of regional markets and proto-industrial districts
New studies on old masters : essays in Renaissance art in honour of Colin Eisler by Jay A Levenson( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twenty essays in this collection examine critical issues in Renaissance art. Written by students of Colin Eisler (Professor, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University), they serve as both a tribute to an exceptional scholar and a reflection of his engagement with technical studies, connoisseurship, cultural exchanges between Italy and northern Europe, and the intersection between art and its religious and cultural contexts. Collectively, they highlight the ways in which Colin Eisler and his scholarly achievements have inspired and will continue to inspire innovative research into the art of western Europe and beyond. Included in this volume is Suzanna B. Simor's article "The Credo in Siena: Art, Civic Religion and Politics in Sienese Images of the Christian Creeds", which was awarded the 2011 Worldwide Books Award for Publications Research given by the Art Libraries Society of North America
