Editorial Reviews


The ambition of this new study is not to be a work of mere local history, but rather a broader contribution to our understanding of pre-university education in sixteenth and early seventeenth century Italy, in which Bergamo functions as a microcosm of larger trends. (Jonathan Woolfson, Renaissance Quarterly, vol 63:03:10)

?This excellent book is a study of schooling in the provincial city of Bergamo in the late Renaissance. Carlsmith offers useful and important data from nearby villages, other Veneto cities, and Venice. No scholar of Renaissance and Catholic Reformation education can afford to miss this important work.? (Paul F. Grendler)

'Carlsmith's erudition and lucid prose are to be praised, and his contribution to reader's understanding of confraternities in the history of education is especially noteworthy, as is his explanation of Counter-Reformation educational programs in general... Such careful, nonpartisan scholarly work deserves a broad readership.' (Natalie E. Latteri)
