Renaissance Culture in Poland: The Rise of Humanism, 1470-1543
This is the first book-length account of Renaissance humanism in 15th- and 16th-century Poland. Harold B. Segel demonstrates that a lively community of intellectuals--Copernicus among them--helped to bring Poland into the mainstream of contemporary European culture and to lay the foundations for the Polish High Renaissance of the second half of the sixteenth century.
