This volume offers a brief bibliographical overview of the recovery of the ancient pagan philosophical texts in Renaissance Europe (1350 to 1650). It aims to show at what point the major texts and sources for the ancient philosophical schools became available, and which translators and commentators shaped their initial reception. It is intended as an aid to students concerned with the role of ancient philosophical thought in the theology, philosophy, political theory, literature and arts of the Renaissance and early modern period.
