Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before they achieved renown as patrons of the arts and de facto rulers of Florence, the Medici family earned their fortune in banking. But even at the height of the Renaissance, charging interest of any kind meant running afoul of the Catholic Church s ban on usury. Tim Parks reveals how the legendary Medicis Cosimo and Lorenzo the Magnificent in particular used the diplomatic, military, and even metaphysical tools at hand, along with a healthy dose of intrigue and wit, to further their fortunes as well as their family s standing.

Synopsis:

Tells the fascinating, frequently bloody story of the Medici - the famous rulers of Florence at the high point of the Renaissance. This is a great business and finance story as well as a historical study of the first order.
