About

Peer review info

All Brill publications are peer-reviewed. This guarantees the quality and relevance of our publications. The procedure for books is as follows:

Manuscripts are submitted to the editors of a series or to the Brill acquisitions editor directly. The editors and/or acquisitions editor make a first selection before a manuscript is sent to 1-3 reviewers – the number depending on the subject of the work. Every manuscript is peer reviewed, single or double blindly, depending on what is applicable in the field or in the series.

The outcome of the review process is either ‘accepted’, ‘accepted with (minor) revisions’ or ‘rejected’. In all cases, authors will receive the anonymised (summarized) reviewer(s) report(s)

In return for their report, reviewers are rewarded with either a fee or a choice of Brill publications of equal value.

The peer review procedure is coordinated by the publishing assistant under supervision of and in close cooperation with the acquisition editor.

Abstract

Cynthia Skenazi explores in this book a shift in attitudes towards aging and provides a historical perspective on a crucial problem of our time. In Aging Gracefully in the Renaissance: Stories of Later Life from Petrarch to Montaigne Cynthia Skenazi explores a shift in attitudes towards aging and provides a historical perspective on a crucial problem of our time. From the late fourteenth to the end of the sixteenth centuries, the elderly subject became a point of new social, medical, political, and literary attention on both sides of the Alps. A movement of secularization tended to dissociate old age from the Christian preparation for death, re-orienting the concept of aging around pragmatic matters such as health care, intergenerational relationships, and accrued insights one might wish to pass along. Such changes were accompanied by an increasing number of personal accounts of later life. This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.
