New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1976. First printing.
The monumental story of Humanism's struggle, during the religious and philosophical ferment of Europe in the fifteenth century.
The principal character, Zeno, the bastard son of a priest, travels widely, seeking answers to questions of anatomy and other sciences that do not endear him to the authorities, especially the Church.
A magnificent overview of the fierce philosophical debates of the fifteenth century, as well as a plea for tolerance.
Hardcover with jacket.
