Item description for The Renaissance in Scotland: Studies in Literature, Religion, History, and Culture Offered to John Durkan (Brill's Studies in Intellectual History) by A. A. Macdonald, Michael Lynch, Ian B. Cowan, A. A. Macdonald & Michael Lynch...
The Renaissance in Scotland is a collection of original essays on a wide range of topics concerning the cultural history of Scotland. The period concerned extends from the late fifteenth through to the early seventeenth century. The individual studies take various aspects of culture as their starting-points: literature; the history of manuscripts and printed books; libraries; the law; the universities; music; education; social, political and ecclesiastical history. The essays, however, all take full account of the larger context provided by the age of humanism and reform, as this was manifested in Scotland. The Renaissance in Scotland contains an abundance of new information and offers many challenging new insights and interpretations. It will be of interest to all those concerned with the cultural and intellectual history of Scotland and of northern Europe in general.
