Fra Filippo Lippi
Although the reckless, charismatic Pico may be the excuse for the story, it revolves around the mystery of Savonarola: Is he mad, divinely inspired, evil? The Rebirth of Venus offers no pat answers. Like the philosophy at its heart, it draws readers into the quest for a deeper, truer wisdom.
