Overview

The Historical Dictionary of the Renaissance covers the history of Western and Central Europe from about 1350 to the early 17th century. It emphasizes those persons, movements, and places that are especially important in the growth of the humanistic culture and the new artistic and musical styles that are the most important aspects of European history in this period. The heart of the book is the alphabetically organized dictionary.

Editorial Reviews

Reference Reviews
...an indispensable reference work, appropriate for public, academic or special libraries. Novice and advanced readers alike will appreciate and benefit from this authoritative source of information by one of the foremost scholars of Renaissance history.
American Reference Books Annual
...a well-organized reference book, presented from a focused, scholarly viewpoint....Nauert does not provide bibliographic information for each entry, instead offering a separate 26-page bibliography that serves as an excellent introductory checklist to the literature. Nauert's dictionary is strongly recommended for academic libraries, either as part of the Historical Dictionary of Ancient Civilizations and Historical Era series or as a standalone resource.
Sixteenth Century Journal
Nauert leaves no stone unturned in his selection of entries as he included lesser-known figures such as Italian naturalist Ulisse Aldrovandi and Alsatian painter Martin Schongauer in his volume, in addition to the more famous Petrarchs and Michelangelos of the Renaissance. Nor does Nauert neglect important women writers, artists, and patrons of the Renaissance....a useful reference tool that will make a nice complement to any Renaissance scholar's library.
