Friar, Reformer, and Renaissance Scholar: Life and Work of Giles of Viterbo, 1469-1532
Fancis X. Martin
Giles was born in Viterbo in 1469 and entered the Augustinian monastery there in June 1488. He ws aged eighteen and had completed his studies of humanities and a course in philosophy. Giles remains a special source for understanding certain aspects of the Renaissance. He played many roles -- orator at the papal court, reforming prior general of the Augustinians, synthesizer -- almost syncretizer -- of certain strains of Renaissance culture. He left behind a large body of work, ranging from practical directives as superior general of a major religious order to the most abstruse speculation on theologoical, historical, and other subjects. Almost every literary genre is represented. This volume contains a revised form of Francis X. Martinís important Cambridge dissertation on Giles, plus suporting materials in the appendices prepared by other scholars.
