Renaissance and reformation : the intellectual genesis by Anthony Levi( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new survey of the development of European intellectual culture between about 1300 and 1535, Anthony Levi offers a fresh view of the Renaissance and the Reformation, calling for a reassessment of the nature of both. Through a radical and detailed examination of the significant intellectual, spiritual, and ideological developments across Europe during this period, Levi disputes the discontinuities commonly understood to explain and defend the events we term the "Renaissance" and the "Reformation." He argues that the renewed cult of the literary, visual, and educational norms of classical antiquity were a consequence - not the essence or cause - of the Renaissance. Further, the Reformation emerged from a cultural movement that neither constituted a historical break nor led to the catastrophic religious clashes of the sixteenth century. He offers a revisionist account of the collapse of scholastic intellectual systems and traces its course."--Jacket

Louis XIV by Anthony Levi( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthony Levi's compelling new life of Louis XIV gives prominence to a very important question. Louis was four when he acceded to the throne in 1643 on the death of Louis XIII. While the facts of his accession are not in doubt, the identity of his father is. There is good reason to believe it was not in fact Louis XIII, but Cardinal Mazarin, the man with his hands on the reins of power during the regency. A psychological portrait of the king is explored in the context of this possibility, the historical consequences of which are extraordinarily wide reaching." "In the seventeenth century France was Europe's most glorious nation and Louis XIV was the incarnation of Apollo, the sun god, popularly referred to as Le Roi Soleil. He was invested with unprecedented power and privilege and endowed with life's finest pleasures, in the arts, music, poetry and material elegance. France was an exceedingly rich, diverse and powerful country: Louis was its magnificent public face, the pinnacle of its glory, for almost 50 years. But though he was one of the most politically effective monarchs ever to reign he was also a man irredeemably flawed and one who ultimately proved damaging both to France and its monarchy." "Levi examines with an expert touch the lifelong clash between Louis' role as the sun king, custodian of the greatness of France, and his guilt, as a human being, at the effect of his reign on France and its people. He questions the wisdom of training one person to be the symbol of absolute authority without allowing or obliging them to act as the embodiment of that authority. Invested with such power, how did Louis use it? Was he tyrant or populist? What was behind the prodigal expenditure on pomp and finery - did he confuse his own glory with that of France? Levi creates a rich, intricate portrait of this legendary ruler, assessing his character and the mixture of devotion and promiscuity that is his hallmark. This intricate, controversial and absorbing account fully examines the lengthy and testing role that fate cast for the Sun King in European history."--Jacket

Collected works of Erasmus by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erasmus' controversies with French, Italian, Spanish, and German critics on theological, social, philological, educational, and other matters are contained in volumes 71-84 of the Collected Works of Erasmus. Volume 76 includes two of his most important disputes with Luther, A Discussion of Free Will and the first part of Hyperaspistes (usually translated as 'protector' or 'shield-bearer'). Erasmus writes in response to Luther's The Enslaved Will and rebukes Luther for his arrogance and for his insulting charge that Erasmus is an atheist. In these works, Erasmus sets out in detail his views on important questions of scripture and church doctrine and tradition in his eloquent defence of free will. A masterly introduction by Professor Trinkaus provides the necessary background for the reader's understanding and appreciation of the struggle between Erasmus and Luther. The second part of Hyperaspistes appears in volume 77, as does the index to both volumes 76 and 77
