A quick reference for lay readers and non-specialists on western Europe, primarily Italy, from the 14th to the 16th centuries. Most of the entries are people, but others identify places, works of art and literature, movements, techniques of art, genres of literature, and other topics. A gallery of 29 color plates reproduce period paintings. The index is thematic by country or region, and within those by such topics as themes and events, political and religious figures, artists and architects, and literature. No bibliographic references are included.
