Pagan mysteries in the Renaissance by Edgar Wind( Book )
174 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 2,363 libraries worldwide
Themes of pagan mysticism and Neoplatonic philosophy are often to be found in the great Renaissance paintings, and in the poetry and other art of the period as well. The author's exploration of these themes was acclaimed when it first appeared, for its impeccable scholarship and its subtle explanation of the imagery of masterpieces by Botticelli, Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian and others. This edition includes an extensive revision of the text and several new appendices and plates to illustrate the author's argument

Will works of the imagination ever regain the power they once had to challenge and mould society and the individual? This was the question posed by Edgar Wind's influential Reith Lectures delivered in 1960 and later expanded into his book Art and Anarchy. The book examines the various forces that have fashioned the modern view of the art, from mechanization and fear of intellect to connoisseurship and--perhaps the fundamental weakness of our age--the dispassionate acceptance of art. In the course of his discussion, Wind surveyed a wide range of topics in the history of painting, literature, music, and the plastic arts from the Renaissance to modern times
