From the PublisherThe subject of this book is a central one for the history of thought in the Renaissance. Rummel has brought together a wide range of primary sources, many of them unfamiliar, and has mapped out the progress of debate and the various positions held by humanists and scholastics on the main issue. It will be impossible to return to the status quo ante as a result of her work.
Erika Rummel's The Humanist-Scholastic Debate in the Renaissance is a distinguished and attractive original contribution to an important but neglected phase of early modern European culture. Rummel has written a great book which will have a strong influence on both Renaissance and Reformation scholars. The scholarship is superb-wide-ranging, accurate, thoughtfully interpreted, in full command.
