Sixteenth-Century Journal
[Volumes 17 and 18] provide the reader with thirteen tightly written articles and review notices on thirty books, selected by an internationally known board of scholars and indefectibly edited by Paul Maurice Clogan.

[W]e profit from critical assessments of new discoveries and interpretations on such diverse themes as the lives of saints, the role of English nobility, Florentine humanism, different genres of art...and the social position of women in medieval Europe, among other themes.
Canadian Journal Of History
A well-rounded volume that is sure to appeal to all readers. Clogan has done well to present transitions of different kinds, not just between historical periods, but also within genres and evolutions of figures and symbols. All essays are impressive in their scholarship. The volume's interdisciplinarity provides exhilarating and rewarding reading.
