Ernest R. Holloway III, "Andrew Melville and Humanism in Renaissance Scotland 1545-1622"
Publisher: Brill Academic Publishers | ISBN: 900420539X | 2011 | PDF | 375 pages | 3.8 MB
The intellectual legacy of Andrew Melville (1545-1622) as a leader of the Renaissance and a promoter of humanism in Scotland has been obscured by "the Melville legend." In an effort to dispense with 'the Melville of popular imagination' and recover 'the Melville of history,' this work situates his life and thought within the broader context of the northern European Renaissance and French humanism and critically re-evaluates the primary historical documents of the period, namely James Melville's Autobiography and Diary and the Melvini epistolae.
