PressestimmenFinding the roots of opera in the history of science is a task that would daunt even a polymath of Renaissance stature. Yet in "The Culture Wars of the Late Renaissance", Edward Muir plausibly explains how the skepticism taught by a professor at the University of Padua in the early 17th century fostered a musical revolution in neighboring Venice--and much else besides.--Francis X.
