"Shortly before his election in 1458 as Pope Pius II, Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini produced a history of recent events in Europe. Europe (c. 1400-1458) provides students and scholars alike with a rich array of famous and lesser known figures and events spanning from Scandinavia to Italy and Iberia, and from Scotland to Lithuania and Greece. Aeneas focused on the reign of Holy Roman Emperor Frederick III, who began his rule in 1440, creating a frame narrow enough to allow the author to move with ease across the continent. Despite this stated focus, Aeneas makes frequent digressions into ancient and medieval history, revealing his sense of how the deeper past affected the present character of cities and regions. Among the people and events Aeneas addresses are the rivalries of German princes, struggles between Eastern Europeans and the Ottoman Turks, including the fall of Constantinople (1453), challenges to the powerful Teutonic Order, the last battles of the Hundred Years War, dynastic wrangling in Spain, the post-schism papacys efforts to reclaim its former dominance, and a lengthy discussion of recent politics and wars in Italy, culminating in the campaigns of Alfonso of Naples. Amidst his descriptions of powerful men, Aeneas also frequently pauses to discuss notable women, customs of the peasantry, religious beliefs of heretics and pagans, and economic issues. This popular text circulated widely in manuscript form and was printed in several editions between the late 15th and the early 18th centuries, in Latin, German, and Italian. The present volume represents the first time this work has been translated into English, bringing its colorful narrative to the attention of a wider audience. This edition also provides extensive footnotes, an appendix of rulers, and a lengthy introduction to Aeneass life and the context and relevance of this work."--Publisher's description

"Royal and princely courts in the late Middle Ages and Early Modern period did not only fill the roles of centers of government. The striving for a synthesis between power and the mind made courts into sites of art and literature, of instruction and education. Sons of nobles learned at court not only the use of weapons, but also reading, writing and arithmetic. Jousting gave young knights the opportunity to test their weapons skills and horsemanship. Moreover festivities were a part of court life, and feasts were celebrated extravagantly. Those nobles who lived as knights as well as the academically educated bourgeois used royal and princely courts as opportunities for assuring their professional careers and for social advancement. The reality of the social and ruling fabric of the court included in the late Middle Ages and Early Modern period some rough criticism from those eloquent contemporaries who branded the court as a morally corrupt place of vices. Church reformers brought the courtly lifestyle and the Christian ethic into irreconcilable contrast. How Enea Silvio Piccolimini, the humanist occupying the seat of St. Peter in Rome, and Ulrich von Hutten, the knightly poet, perceived, criticized and justified courtly life, is the subject of this book."--Publisher's website
Descripción de Asia by Pius( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eneas Silvio Piccolomini (1405-1464), más conocido por Pio II, nombre que adoptó cuando alcanzó el papado en 1461, fue además de papa, un gran humanista como se refleja a través de las obras que nos ha dejado. Una de ellas, Historia rerum ubique gestarum, consistía en una especie de enciclopedia histórico geográfica que debía de recoger lo que hasta entonces se conocía del mundo. Este ambicioso proyecto, que no pudo completar a causa de su fallecimiento, se conserva solo una parte completa y no en su totalidad, dedicada al mítico, misterioso y rico continente asiático. En este libro se presenta una edición crítica de Asia, precedido de una introducción con una breve reseña de la vida de Pio II, con un esbozo del contexto político e histórico que explica la composición del Asia y los datos aportados por la bibliografía más reciente. Se cierra con la bibliografía consultada, una traducción al castellano del texto latino y como apéndice, un índice de los nombres de persona y de los lugares geográficos mencionados
