Fifteenth-Century Studies Vol. 22

Edited by William C. McDonald

Latest volume of annual publication covering a variety of aspects of life in the fifteenth century.
Fifteenth-Century Studies has appeared annually since its foundation in 1977 as the publication arm for the Fifteenth-Century Symposium, and aims to include essays on all aspects of life during the time, medicine, philosophy, painting, religion, science, history, ritual and custom, music, and poetry. It covers a period which defies consensus on various fundamental issues; indeed, some dispute that the fifteenth century can be regarded as part of the middle ages, arguing that it is a time of transition to the modern age. Fifteenth-Century Studies takes no dogmatic view on the vexed questions the period presents, rather aiming to encourage a dispassionate assessment of fifteenth-century life and literature, examining the preoccupations of those living in the period and attempting to identify the threads which bind the achievements of figures as diverse as Malory, Machiavelli, Copernicus, Caxton, Margery Kempe, Hans Holbein, Joan of Arc, and Christine de Pizan. There is also a wide-ranging review section.
