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

"This book is an exploration of six neglected and under-valued self-narratives composed in the period stretching from the reign of Henri IV through that of Louis XIV. Cholakian reads these self-narratives as gestures of political resistance to the marginalization of women during the ancient regime."--Jacket

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
