Product description


"The book is written with great clarity, it makes inventive use of a wide range of texts, and it rightly stresses the powerful (often overlooked) links between humanists in Northern and Southern Europe. [...] [Furey's] book offers many telling insights into the world of 16th-century pious literati."
-Jonathan Wright, Hartlepool, United Kingdom, Studies in Religion

"In this remarkable book, Constance Furey (Religion, Indiana University) mines the correspndance of several of the 16th century's leading scholars...a critically important study and highly recommended to all academic libraries supporting programs in history."
-Daniel Boice, Catholic Library World

Book Description

The Republic of Letters in Early Modern Europe is commonly understood as a force of secularization. This book, however, shows that in the first half of the sixteenth century, Catholic men and women of letters forged this community for religious reasons. In the process, they created a new kind of spirituality that prioritized friendship and spiritualized scholarship. The book analyzes letters, poems, and literary and polemical works written by female as well as male Catholic humanists and explains why they created this new community instead of simply entering traditional religious orders.
