Book Overview

An unusual and thought-provoking collection of biographies that tell the story of the two great movements in European history that ushered in modern times. Many of the figures will be familiar (Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Luther) but there are some unusual and intriguing choices as well (Machiavelli, Cesare Borgia, and Michael Sattler, for example). The text covers the period in Western European history from 1300-1550, and also includes chapters on Giotto,...

very informative

This book is full of great information on men of this time period. It tells you who they were, and what their role in history was. It does a good job of linking the principal players as well, so that you understand who was living and making history at the same time, and what influence they had upon one another.

Interesting way to cover history

My children and I really enjoyed this treatment of the Renaissance and Reformation. I recommend all the titles in this series.

Where are the women?

This is an excellent research tool for high schoolers in history, religion, humanities, art history or world history classes. It is a large, workbook-sized soft cover book. I ordered it for our church library. Illustrations are all in black and white. It was interesting to read as an adult, too, o because it is a good refresher or review of the history of the era. Although each chapter covers a person, the history of the whole book is kept intact. I would recommend it to public school high school teachers for use as a text. However, I have a comment. Where are the WOMEN of the Renaissance and Reformation? What about Catherine de Medici, Katherine von Bora, Joan of Arc, Hildegard von Bingen, and Artimisia Gentileschi, the great female Renaissance painter (check Vasari's Lives of the Painters.) I would like to see women included in any revisions, with the book called, "Famous PEOPLE of the Renaissance and Reformation." Do some digging and don't follow the typical history that men haver written. There is "herstory", too, and it should be researched and brought once again to life. Just because women may not have been as famous as the men, they did wield considerable power and were just as spiritual and talented.
