This translation of Pico della Mirandola's famed qOration, q hitherto hidden away in anthologies, was prepared especially for Gateway Editions, making it available for the first time in a single volume.

The tenacity with which he clung to fundamental Christian teachings while crying nut against his brilliant though half-pagan contemporaries made him exceptional in a time of exceptional men. While Pico, as Russell Kirk observes in his introduction, was an ardent spokesman for the qdignity of man, q his devout nature elevated humanism to a truly Christian level, which makes his writing as pertinent today as it was in the fifteenth century.This translation of Pico della Mirandolaa#39;s famed aquot;Oration, aquot; hitherto hidden away in anthologies, was prepared especially for Gateway Editions, making it available for the first time in a single volume.
