Roscoe and Italy : the reception of Italian Renaissance history and culture in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by Stella Fletcher( )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anglo-Italian cultural connections in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries have been the subject of numerous studies in recent decades. Within that wider body of literature, there has been a growing emphasis on appreciation of the history and culture of Renaissance Italy, especially in nineteenth-century Britain. In 1954 J.R. Hale's "England and the Italian Renaissance" was a pioneering account of the subject, followed in 1992 by Hilary Fraser's monograph "The Victorians and Renaissance Italy" and in 2005 by "Victorian and Edwardian Responses to the Italian Renaissance", edited by John E. Law and Lene Ostermark-Johansen. There is, however, an obvious gap in the literature concerning the pivotal figure of William Roscoe (1753-1831), the first English-language biographer of Lorenzo de' Medici and of Pope Leo X. The Life of Lorenzo de' Medici called the Magnificent proved to be so popular as to prompt the claim that Roscoe effectively invented the Italian Renaissance as it has become understood by subsequent generations of readers in the English-speaking world. This collection of ten essays redresses the balance by examining Roscoe as biographer, as a connoisseur of Italian literature and as a collector of Italian works of art

Cardinal Wolsey : a life in Renaissance Europe by Stella Fletcher( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The accession of Henry VIII provided the catalyst for Cardinal Wolsey's dramatic rise to power. A month after his receipt of the coveted cardinal's hat in 1515, Wolsey became lord chancellor, making him the king's principal minister and England's senior judge, despite having no formal education in the law. Wolsey's pan-European vision ensured that he was well aware of the threat posed by Martin Luther's theological revolution and campaign against clerical abuses. He therefore sought to nip English heresy in the bud by taking decisive action against known religious radicals and by founding Cardinal College (now Christ Church), Oxford, with a view to forming well-educated priests who would combat heresy and institute ecclesiastical reform from within the hierarchy. Among England's senior churchmen, only Wolsey might have executed such a strategy, but circumstances were combining to thwart his plans. Wolsey was frustrated and ultimately disgraced by the essentially domestic problem of the king's determination that Anne Boleyn should be his wife and the mother of his legitimate heir

The Mitre & the Crown : a history of the archbishops of Canterbury by Dominic Aidan Bellenger( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Mitre and the Crown draws upon a wealth of recent scholarly literature to relate the story of the archbishops against a backdrop of more than fourteen centuries of English ecclesiastical history. It examines the social and cultural experiences that shaped the holders of the archiepiscopal office, together with the personal talents they brought to the service of both Church and State."--Jacket
The Popes and Britain : a history of rule, rupture and reconciliation by Stella Fletcher( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the British thought of themselves as a Protestant nation their natural enemy was the pope and they adapted their view of history accordingly. In contrast, Rome's perspective was always considerably wider and its view of Britain was almost invariably positive, especially in comparison to medieval emperors, who made and unmade popes, and post-medieval Frenchmen, who treated popes with contempt. As the twenty-first-century papacy looks ever more firmly beyond Europe, this new history examines political, diplomatic and cultural relations between the popes and Britain from their vague origins, through papal overlordship of England, the Reformation and the process of repairing that breach
