Love the way this series was conceived and organized; from the helpful intro by Zorach, to the interesting circulated essays, to the inclusion of a transcript from a roundtable referencing those essays, to many short assessments by interesting people working on the field who also had access to the essays and the seminar transcripts.
A great intro into what is going on in the field of Renaissance art history, much of which is quite progressive and innovative!
