“Ingrid Rowland’s amazing essays are over the top and down the other side. They pop, they sparkle, they inform, and they add up to a rich and vivid mosaic of Renaissance culture, its ancient sources, and its contemporary interpreters. Above all, they show us why deep scholarship and high style matter so much in this gray age of the world’s history.” –Anthony Grafton

"…as a brightly lit bustle through widely scattered topics, From Heaven to Arcadia offers pleasures on almost every page….the essays are celebrations of the glories of the Renaissance and those who write about them." –Theodore K. Rabb, The Times Literary Supplement
