Angelo Poliziano's Lamia text, translation, and introductory studies by Angelo Poliziano ( )
12 editions published in 2010 in English and Latin and held by 988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1492, Angelo Poliziano published his Lamia, a praelectio, or opening oration to a course he would teach that academic year on Aristotle's Prior Analytics at the Florentine university. Having heard murmurings that he was not philosopher enough to teach the Aristotelian text, Poliziano strikes back, offering in effect a fable-tinted history of philosophy. More than a repudiation of local gossip, the text represents a rethinking of the mission of philosophy. This volume offers the first English translation, an edition of the Latin text, and four studies that set this rich example of humanist Latin writing in context. --Book Jacket

The lost Italian Renaissance : humanists, historians, and Latin's legacy by Christopher S Celenza ( Book )
11 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Historian and literary scholar Christopher Celenza argues that serious interest in the intellectual life of Renaissance Italy can be reinvigorated -- and the nature of the Renaissance itself reconceived -- by recovering a major part of its intellectual and cultural activity that has been largely ignored since the Renaissance was first "discovered": the vast body of works -- literary, philosophical, poetic, and religious -- written in Latin. Produced between the mid-fourteenth and the early sixteenth centuries by major figures such as Leonardo Bruni, Lorenzo Valla, Marsilio Ficino, and Leon Battista Alberti, as well as minor but interesting thinkers like Lapo da Castiglionchio the Younger, this literature was initially overlooked by scholars of the Renaissance because they were not written in the vernacular Italian which alone was seen as was the supreme expression of a culture. This lack of attention, which continued well into the twentieth century, has led interpreters to misread key aspects of the Renaissance. Offering a flexible theoretical framework within which to understand these Latin texts, Celenza explains why these "lost" sources are distinctive and why they are worthy of study
Piety and Pythagoras in Renaissance Florence : the Symbolum nesianum by Christopher S Celenza ( Book )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Renaissance humanism and the Papal Curia : Lapo da Castiglionchio the Younger's De curiae commodis by Christopher S Celenza ( Book )
9 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Celenza presents a detailed examination of this neglected but important humanist. A contemporary and acquaintance of Leonardo Bruni, Leon Battista Alberti, and other humanist greats, Lapo da Castiglionchio the Younger presented a bird's-eye view of the papal court. This volume expands the growing canon of Italian Renaissance Latin literature by providing the first truly critical edition of this work as well as the first-ever English translation. In addition, Celenza offers a study that illuminates the social and intellectual context of early humanism. The book discusses Lapo's life and work, the literary context of the dialogue, and the manner in which Lapo skillfully criticized the papal court even as he sought employment there."--BOOK JACKET
