Lorenzo de' Medici- New Perspectives

Proceedings of the International Conference Held at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, April 30-May 2, 1992

Series:

Bernard Toscani

On the occasion of the quincentenary of the death of Lorenzo de' Medici, an interdisciplinary, international conference was held at Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York in the spring of 1992. The previously unpublished papers (eleven in English and six in Italian) contained in this volume are the work of leading specialists in the fields of literature, history, philosophy, art, and music. On the basis of the recent critical editions of Lorenzo's poetical works and letters and of new documents, the scholars examine and re-evaluate Lorenzo's significant role as a poet, statesman, choreographer, patron of the arts, and member of a lay confraternity.
