MOULDERS OF DESTINY

Comprehensive survey of all Europe and all fields through ten portraits. The writer has chosen these ten because they illustrated the laying of groundwork in the Renaissance of modern trends, neglected factors in modern history, in religion, art, economics, society, politics. He gives the people in relation to their time and their background and does it so adroitly that no knowledge of history in necessary for interest and understanding. In chronological order, from the 14th to the early 17th century he takes up Valla, Charles VII of France, Henry VII of England, Machiavelli, Raphael, Paracelsus, Loyola, Catherine de Medici, Don Juan of Austria and Jan Coen of Holland.
