The twelve essays in this new collection by John Monfasani examine how, in particular cases, Greek emigres, Italian humanists, and Latin scholastics reacted with each other in surprising and important ways. After an opening assessment of Greek migration to Renaissance Italy, the essays range from the Averroism of John Argyropoulos and the capacity of Nicholas of Cusa to translate Greek, to Marsilio Ficino's position in the Plato-Aristotle controversy and the absence of Ockhamists in Renaissance Italy. Theodore Gaza receives special attention in his roles as translator, teacher, and philosopher, as does Lorenzo Valla for his philosophy, theology, and historical ideas. Finally, the life and writings of a protege of Cardinal Bessarion, the Dominican friar Giovanni Gatti, come in for their first extensive study.
'Monfasani's book is a school of methodology and as such should be mandatory for all graduate students.' Sixteenth Century Journal
John Monfasani is Professor in the Department of History, at the State University of New York at Albany, USA.
