Lives of the Renaissance Popes

I am currently working on a critical Latin edition and English translation of Platina, Lives of the Renaissance Popes. Platina worked at the heart of the Renaissance papacy under three different popes. His biographies of these popes and other Renaissance popes are vital for our understanding of the Renaissance papacy. This edition will be the first translation of his Latin into modern English. The book will be published in The I Tatti Renaissance Library, Harvard University Press.
