The six volumes of this reference, written for the middle school student, provide alphabetical entries on the people, issues, and events of the European Renaissance and Reformation, as well as individual entries on each country. Among the numerous biographical entries are many artists, writers, philosophers, and political figures. The entries are well illustrated in color and b&w plates and many include inset boxes that detail related issues, events, or the careers of significant people. The lengthy entry on theatre, for example, contains boxes on the Fool, the commedia dell'arte, Lope de Rueda, Anthony Munday, and Thomas Middleton, among others. Volume Six contains thematic indexes, resources for further study, and a glossary, among other resources. Patrick is the chancellor of the College of Saint Thomas More, Fort Worth, Texas. The contributors teach mainly in the US and the UK.
