"This fascinating conference volume is the latest publication of the remarkable Italian-German scholars Veltri and Miletto. It reflects the strong trend in Renaissance interests among European Jewish studies scholars, of whom this pair are leading lights. [...] The book overall is a fine example of what a conference volume should be. [...] [T]he essays [...] are all good; [...] rise to the level of excellence." - Matt Goldish, The Ohio State University, in: Renaissance Quarterly 65.4 (Winter 2012), pp. 1271-1273, DOI: 10.1086/669413
"Brill's new scholarly edition and translation of Moscato's sermons is a major contribution to Jewish Renaissance studies. [...] The editors identify the many references to both Jewish and Classical literature, and give brief but clear explanations when needed. The translation is also clear, and seems to accruately reflect the Hebrew text." - Jim Rosenbloom, in: Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews, November/December 2012
