schema:reviewBody""Sister to the king of France, queen of Navarre, gifted writer, religious reformer, and patron of the arts - in her many roles, Marguerite de Navarre (1492-1549) was one of the most important figures of the French Renaissance. In this, the first major biography in English, Patricia F. Cholakian and Rouben C. Cholakian draw on her writings to provide a vivid portrait of Marguerite's public and private life. Freeing her from the shadow of her brother Francois I, they recognize her immense influence on French politics and culture, and they challenge conventional views of her family relationships." "The authors highlight Marguerite's considerable role in advancing the cause of religious reform in France - her support of vernacular translations of sacred works, her denunciation of ecclesiastical corruption, her founding of orphanages and hospitals, and her defense and protection of persecuted reformists. Had this plucky and spirited woman not been sister to the king, she would most likely have ended up at the stake. Though she remained a devout Catholic, her theological poem Miroir de l'ame pecheresse, a mystical summa of evangelical doctrine that was viciously attacked by conservatives, remains to this day an important part of the Protestant corpus."--Jacket."
