April blood : Florence and the plot against the Medici by Lauro Martines( Book )

28 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The failed assassination doomed the Pazzi. Medici revenge was swift and brutal - plotters were hanged or beheaded, innocents were hacked to pieces, and bodies were put out to dangle from the windows of the government palace. All remaining members of the Pazzi clan were forced to change their surname, and every public sign or symbol of the family was destroyed. April Blood offers us a fresh portrait of Renaissance Florence, where dazzling artistic achievements went side-by-side with violence, cruelty, and bare-knuckle politics. At the center of the canvas is the figure of Lorenzo the Magnificent - poet, statesman, connoisseur, patron of the arts, and ruthless ʺboss of bosses.ʺ This extraordinarily vivid account of a turning point in the Italian Renaissance is bound to become a lasting work of history.

Fire in the city : Savonarola and the struggle for Renaissance Florence by Lauro Martines( Book )

24 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A gripping and beautifully written narrative that reads like a novel, Fire in the City presents a compelling account of a key moment in the history of the Renaissance, illuminating the remarkable man who dominated the period, the charismatic Savonarola. Lauro Martines, whose decades of scholarship have made him one of the most admired historians of Renaissance Italy, here provides a remarkably fresh perspective on Girolamo Savonarola, the preacher and agitator who flamed like a comet through late fifteenth-century Florence. The Dominican friarhas long been portrayed as a dour, puritanical
Furies : war in Europe, 1450-1700 by Lauro Martines( Book )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We think of the Renaissance as a shining era of human achievement, yet it was also an age of constant, harrowing warfare. Armies, not philosophers, shaped the face of Europe as modern nation-states emerged from feudal society. Martines captures the dark reality of the period in a gripping narrative mosaic, putting us on the front lines of battle, and on the streets of cities under siege, to reveal what Europe's wars meant to the men and women who endured them
Lawyers and statecraft in Renaissance Florence by Lauro Martines( Book )

18 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lawyers at work-in diplomacy, in relations with the Church, in territorial government, in the formulation of policy, in administration, and in the political struggle provide the unifying theme in this analysis of the exercise of political power in Renaissance Florence. Professor Martines studies the actual techniques of government, the hidden legal and constitutional questions raised by everyday affairs, and the responses of individual lawyers to the pressures of politics. He shows precisely how Florentine lawyers, both republicans and oligarchs, viewed the state. An appendix lists and briefly characterizes the some 200 lawyers who practiced in Florence during the period 1380 to 1530. Originally published in 1968. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

Extracts from writings mostly by or about women, from Ancient Greece to the mid-19th century. Contains on p. 49-51 a extract from Plutarch's 'Dialogue on Love', in which the author debates over the relative merits of homosexual and heterosexual love were commonplace. Here Protogenes, who believes that women are incapable of true feeling or intellect, argues that love is almost by definition homosexual. His friend Daphnaeus, who seems to represent Plutarch, vehemently disagrees. Also on p. 193-4 Christina de Pisan and on p. 329-30 Mary Wollstonecraft

Denn zu kaum einer anderen Zeit wird ein ganzer Kontinent so von Kriegen gezeichnet wie am Übergang vom Mittelalter zur Moderne. Heerscharen, die größer sind als ganze Städte, hinterlassen eine Spur der Verwüstung. Gewaltige Kriegsmaschinen pflügen sich durch die Landen und lassen keinen Stein auf dem anderen. Reiter und Fußvolk stehen mitten im blutigen Kampfgeschehen. Ausgetragen werden diese Kriege auf dem Rücken der Bevölkerung, die selbst qualvoll an Hung
Potere e fantasia : le città stato nel Rinascimento by Lauro Martines( Book )

9 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in Italian and English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great Italian city-states: Venice, Florence, Milan, and the others. The particular nature of their history and culture through the five centuries of their emergence, magnificent flowering, and twilight is brilliantly explored in terms of the internal shifts of economic, social, and political power'by violence, by manipulation, by the gradual pressures of changing circumstance. And here are the life and culture and works of imagination that were created as the merchants and guilds wrested dominion from the ancient nobility, from the first struggles against the Holy Roman Empire in the twelfth century through the rich cultural blaze and political exhaustion of the sixteenth. Lauro Martines, Professor of History at UCLA, has drawn together and chronicled in a single fluent narrative all the explosive energies, the social strife, the civil disorder, the political violence, the economic transformations, the crises of control, the religious fervor and corruption, and the spectacular achievements of art and intellect that made and defined the city-states
