This study explores a prominent Italian Renaissance theme, the origin of genius, revealing how the coalescence of a Platonic theory of divine frenzy and an Aristotelian theory of melancholy genius eventually disintegrated under the force of late Renaissance events.
This study reconstructs the relations between the fifteenth century English patron of Italian Renaissance humanism, Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester (1390-1447), his Italian middlemen, and several Italian humanists with regard to the social and political context of their shared literary interests.
