From Pompeii : the afterlife of a Roman town by Ingrid D Rowland( )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The experience of Pompeii always reflects a particular time and sensibility, says Ingrid Rowland. From Pompeii: The Afterlife of a Roman Town explores the fascinating variety of these different experiences, as described by the artists, writers, actors, and other who have toured the excavated site. The city's houses, temples, gardens - and traces of Vesuvius's human victims - have elicited responses ranging from awe to embarrassment, with shifting cultural tastes playing an important role. -- from back cover
On the heroic frenzies by Giordano Bruno( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the Heroic Frenzies is at once a philosophical dialogue, an anthology of love poetry, and a collection of sonnets, songs, and emblems – sometimes borrowed from other writers, but primarily Bruno’s own. Rowland’s detailed introduction and extensive footnotes highlight the philosophical sources, Biblical allusions, and biographical elements that make Bruno’s work both richly conceived and often challenging to understand. Providing cohesive insights into Bruno’s text, Rowland’s edition of On the Heroic Frenzies is a helpful guide for those new to his work."--pub. desc

The culture of the High Renaissance : ancients and moderns in sixteenth-century Rome by Ingrid D Rowland( Book )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study, Ingrid Rowland examines the culture, society, and intellectual norms that generated the High Renaissance. Fueled by a volatile mix of economic development, scholarly longing for the glories of ancient civilization, and religious ferment, the High Renaissance, Rowland posits, was also a period in which artists, patrons, and scholars sought "new methods for doing new things." This interdisciplinary study assesses the intellectual paradigm shift that occurred at the turn of the fifteenth century. It also finds and explains the connections between ideas, people, and the art works they created by looking at economics, art, contemporary understanding of classical antiquity, and social conventions
The collector of lives : Giorgio Vasari and the invention of art by Ingrid D Rowland( Book )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Giorgio Vasari (1511-1574) was a man of many talents--a sculptor, painter, architect, writer, and scholar--but he is best known for Lives of the Artists, the classic account that singlehandedly invented the genre of artistic biography and established the canon of Italian Renaissance art. Before Vasari's extraordinary book, art was considered a technical skill rather than an intellectual pursuit, and artists were mere decorators and craftsmen. It was through Vasari's visionary writings that artists like Raphael, Leonardo, and Michelangelo came to be regarded as great masters of life as well as art, their creative genius celebrated as a divine gift. Their enduring reputations testify to Vasari's profound yet unspoken influence on western culture. An advisor to kings and pontiffs--and a confidant to Titian, Donatello, and more--Vasari enjoyed an exhilarating career amid the thrilling culture of Renaissance Italy"--Inside dust jacket
The scarith of Scornello : a tale of Renaissance forgery by Ingrid D Rowland( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vitruvius : ten books on architecture by Vitruvius Pollio( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The only full treatise on architecture and its related arts to survive from classical antiquity, De Architectura libri decem (Ten Books on Architecture) is the single most important work of architectural history in the Western world, having shaped humanist architecture and the image of the architect from the Renaissance to the present. Extremely influential in the formation of the medieval and modern concept of a broad liberal arts education as the basis for responsible professionals, this work is remarkable also because over half of its content deals with aspects of Hellenistic art, science and technology, music theory, law, artillery, siege machinery, proportion and philosophy, among other topics." "This new, critical edition of Vitruvius's Ten Books on Architecture is the first to be published for an English-language audience in more than half a century."--Jacket

The divine spark of Syracuse by Ingrid D Rowland( Book )

5 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on the figures of Plato, Archimedes, and Caravaggio, 'The Divine Spark of Syracuse' discloses the role that Syracuse, a Greek cultural outpost in Sicily, played in fueling creative energies. Among the topics this book explores are Plato and the allegory of the cave, and the divine spark mentioned in his Seventh Letter. It also considers the machines of Archimedes, including his famous screw, and the variety of siege and antisiege weapons that he developed in the defense of his hometown during the sieges of the First and Second Punic Wars, including "the hand" (a giant claw), the "burning mirror," and the catapult. The final chapter offers a look at the sixteenth-century artist and roustabout Caravaggio. On the run after yet another street brawl, Caravaggio traveled to Syracuse, where he painted The Burial of St. Lucy (Santa Lucia) in 1608. Typical of his late works, the painting is notable for its subdued tones and emotional and psychological delicacy, even fragility. This captivating book lends clear insight into the links between the sense of place and inspiration in philosophy, mathematics, and art. Rowland is the most learned tour guide we could ask for

Yaël Farber : plays one by Yaël Farber( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'It is impossible to come away from RAM or Mies Julie without feeling that the world must change; Molora points the way. Ya?l Farber's theatre will leave no participant unmoved. 'Ingrid Rowland, from her introduction Molora In this reworking of Aeschylus' Oresteia, Klytemnestra and Elektra face one another in a dramatic confrontation. Attempts to come to terms with their violent past echo testimonies delivered in Apartheid's wake throughout South Africa during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. RAM: The Abduction of Sita into Darkness Farber's potent revisioning of this age-old text is a raw and probing contemporary work which places the loss of the Feminine Divine, and thus our lack of spiritual and moral equilibrium, at itsvisceral core. This is a Ramayana for a new world. Mies Julie Transposed to a post-apartheid kitchen - a single night, both brutal and tender, unfolds between a black farm-labourer, the daughter of his master and the woman who has raised them both. The visceral struggles of contemporary South Africa are laid bare, as John and Mies Julie spiral in a deadly battle over power, sexuality, mothers and memory

Authority, innovation and early modern epistemology : essays in honour of Hilary Gatti by M. L McLaughlin( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Giordano Bruno (1548-1600), who died at the stake, is one of the best-known symbols of anti-establishment thought. The theme of this volume, which is offered as a collection of essays to honour the distinguished Bruno scholar Hilary Gatti, reflects her constant concern for the principles of cultural freedom and independent thinking. Several essays deal with Bruno himself, including an analysis of the Eroici furori, a study of his reception in relation to the group known as the Novatores, and discussions of several important aspects of his stay in England. The authors and texts discussed here are linked by a relentless interest in the question of authority and originality, and they range from literary figures such as Alberti (1404-72), Vasari (1511-74) and the proponents of quantitative verse in sixteenth-century England to controversial philosophers who, like Bruno, were condemned by the Church, such as Tommaso Campanella (1568-1639) and Giulio Cesare Vanini (1585-1619). Taken together, these chapters show how much that was new and revolutionary in early modern culture came from its confrontation with the past. Martin McLaughlin is Agnelli-Serena Professor of Italian at Oxford. Elisabetta Tarantino is a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Italian at the University of Warwick."--Provided by publisher
