"A beautiful, exhilarating book that integrates the inspiration of Renaissance art with its philosophy." "Julianne Davidow's book illustrates the Renaissance world with images of beauty that feed the imagination and philosophic sayings that resonate with the wisdom of the period. Her commentaries bridge the centuries to make these Renaissance Italians our contemporaries and our guides to a saner way of being." "It's time to move on and focus on those things we have neglected: art, beauty, and the union of humanism and religion. I would urge the reader to read the book carefully. Think about the words you read and take time with the images. There is the possibility for new life here, for finding a way out of the dehumanizing philosophies that control our world." "In the Renaissance, art was intended to have both body, visual aesthetics, and soul, philosophical insight. Too often modern art histories praise the body but ignore th soul. Julianne Davidow has resouled Renaissance art." It's time to move on and focus on those things we have neglected: art, beauty, and the union of humanism and religion.
