HERETICS AND HEROES How Renaissance Artists and Reformation Priests Created Our World

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Thomas Cahill

History • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Thomas Cahill’s brand of history is highly personalized, based on his own travels and his own highly literate responses to the art he discusses. It’s only right, therefore, that he should be the narrator of this engaging and literate history of Renaissance artists and Reformation clerics—as rich and varied a set of personalities as any history has to offer. Cahill narrates with ease and clarity and, if anything, improves upon the immediacy of the written text. An added advantage of this audio version is that it allows one to research and view simultaneously the artworks he is discussing—for example, the various Renaissance Davids, a high point of this title. Here all the potential of audio production is perfectly achieved. D.A.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
