Language and Learning in Renaissance Italy : Selected Articles Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series

Description

Language was the Italian humanists' stock-in-trade, rhetoric their core discipline. In this volume Professor Monfasani collects together his most important articles on these subjects. One group of these, including two review essays, focuses specifically on the humanist Lorenzo Valla and on his philosophy of language. The third section of the book opens out the coverage of Italian Renaissance cultural history and includes studies of several new texts - among them a description of the decoration of the Sistine Chapel, and a call for press censorship - and of the religious culture of mid-15th-century Rome. Le langage etait l'instrumet de base des humanistes italiens, la rhetorique leur discipline de fond. Dans ce volume, le professeur Monfasani rassemble ses articles les plus importants sur le sujet . Un groupe d'entre eux, comprenant deux comptesrendus, se concentre specifiquement sur l'humaniste Lorenzo Valla et sur sa philosophie du langage. La troisieme section du recueil elargit le champ de connaissance de l'histoire culturelle de la Renaissance italienne et inclus des etudes de plusieurs textes nouveaus - parmi ceux-ci, une description de la decoration interieure de la chapelle Sixtine et un appel A la censure de la presse -, ainsi que de la culture religieuse romaine au milieu du 15e siecle.
