Product description


John W. O'Malley, S.J. author of "Praise and Blame in Renaissance Rome" For understanding Renaissance Venice in all its mystery, no better book exists in any language than Wills's brilliant, beautifully written, and profoundly erudite tour de force. It will sweep you along with swift delight through art, politics, commerce, and religion to the heart and soul of an almost incomparably rich culture. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
