(Nicolas of Cusa). BELLITTO, Christopher M., Thomas M. IZBICKI, and Gerald CHRISTIANSON (eds.). Introducing Nicholas of Cusa : A Guide to a Renaissance Man. New York / Mahwah, N.J.: Paulist Press, (2004). Pp [i]-xvi,-480. Index. 8vo, illustrated tan card covers. “This volume is a primer on Nicholas of Cusa [1401-1464], one of the most illustrious figures of the fifteenth century, who wrote on everything from papal politics to interrelieious dialogue. He was a man whose imagination spanned the late Middle Ages and theRenaissance to point the way to modernity. Trained as a canonist, Nicholas of Cusa first made his mark in political thought. Later he became a bishop , a papal legate, a cardinal, and an original philosopher and theologian. His ideas of learned ignorance and the coincidence of opposites still attract attention today across a wide variety of disciplines: church history, political theory, interfaith matters, philosophy, theology, mysticism, spirituality, humanism, cosmology, and mathematics.” - from the back cover.
