This collection of essays marks the retirement from the University of Western Ontario of a distinguished and dedicated scholar, Wallace K. Ferguson.
The volume consists of thirteen essays on various aspects of the later Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The essays explore the political, historiographical, biographical, and aesthetic history of the period ranging from Dante to Henry VII. The contributors are former colleagues and students of Professor Ferguson, outstanding scholars from Britain, Canada, and the United States.
Dr. Ferguson's publications and his scholarly labours have earned him a distinguished place in the historiography of the Renaissance. He is a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, and in 1967 he received the Canada Council Medal. He is also historical co-editor of the Collected Works of Erasmus, in English, to be published by the University of Toronto Press.
A fitting tribute to a distinguished scholar, this volume will stand as a lasting contribution to the study of the later Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
It will interest all students of European history and culture as well as specialists in last Medieval and Renaissance studies.
