Professor Timothy Kircher Publishes Essay

H. Curt ’56 and Patricia S. ’57 Hege Professor of History Tim Kircher has recently published an essay on the work of the Renaissance humanist and artist Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472). The essay concerns a fable that Alberti wrote, Fate and Fortune, which inspired later such thinkers as Leonardo da Vinci. Tim's essay appears in a volume entitled, Leon Battista Alberti: Intercenales: A Collection of Short Neo-Latin Prose Works Between Antiquity and Modernity, ed. H. Wulfram (Stuttgart: Franz Steiner, 2021).
