Life in Renaissance France

Lucien Febvre

Edited and translated by Marian Rothstein

ISBN 9780674531802

Publication date: 05/16/1979

In writing about sixteenth-century France, Lucien Febvre looked for those changes in human consciousness that explain the process of civilization—the most specific and tangible examples of men’s experience, the most vivid details of their daily lives. These essays, written at the height of Febvre’s powers and sensitively edited and translated by Marian Rothstein, are the most lucid, evocative, and accessible examples of his art.


  • Superb teaching essays capable of stimulating the historical awareness of students and of challenging the assumptions of scholars.
