Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Thriller / suspense, History

With Renaissance Lives , Theodore K. Rabb revives a tradition of writing that was often practiced by the historians of that astounding era: to tell the story of an age by examining the lives of those who lived it. Rabb's subjects are all people who felt change gather speed around them: from Titian and Galileo to Catherine de' Medici and John Milton.

Renaissance Lives shows us the struggle , with its grave disappointments but also its extraordinary achievements that accompanied the creation of the world we recognize as our own.
