The disciplines now known as the humanities emerged in their modern form during the Italian Renaissance as the result of an educational movement begun by humanist teachers, writers, and scholars in the early fourteenth century. These educators argued for the usefulness of classical literature as an instrument for training young men and women, not only in the arts of language and eloquence, but also in civic virtue and practical wisdom. This volume provides new translations, commissioned for the I Tatti Renaissance Library, of four of the most important theoretical statements that emerged from the early humanistsrsquo; efforts to reform medieval education: Pier Paolo Vergerio, ldquo;The Character and Studies Befitting a Free-Born Youthrdquo; Leonardo Bruni, ldquo;The Study of Literaturerdquo; Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini (Pope Pius II), ldquo;The Education of Boysrdquo; Battista Guarino, ldquo;A Program of Teaching and Learningrdquo;

Craig W. Kallendorf is Professor of Modern and Classical Languages at Texas A & M University and the author of Vergil and the Myth of Venice: Books and Readers in the Italian Renaissance.
