Pressestimmen...an indispensable reference work, appropriate for public, academic or special libraries. Novice and advanced readers alike will appreciate and benefit from this authoritative source of information by one of the foremost scholars of Renaissance history. Reference Reviews ...a well-organized reference book, presented from a focused, scholarly viewpoint...Nauert does not provide bibliographic information for each entry, instead offering a separate 26-page bibliography that serves as an excellent introductory checklist to the literature. Nauert's dictionary is strongly recommended for academic libraries, either as part of the Historical Dictionary of Ancient Civilizations and Historical Era series or as a standalone resource. American Reference Books Annual Nauert leaves no stone unturned in his selection of entries as he included lesser-known figures such as Italian naturalist Ulisse Aldrovandi and Alsatian painter Martin Schongauer in his volume, in addition to the more famous Petrarchs and Michelangelos of the Renaissance. Nor does Nauert neglect important women writers, artists, and patrons of the Renaissance...a useful reference tool that will make a nice complement to any Renaissance scholar's library. Sixteenth Century Journal Recommended. CHOICE
