"Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499) made a vital contribution to the change in European Society that took place in the Renaissance. Men of influence throughout Europe drew intellectual and spiritual inspiration from him and his Academy. He conducted an extensive correspondence and during his life. With the exception of a few individual letters, these have not been translated into English before. The ongoing translations are the work of a group of scholars at the School of Economic Science in London. This series contains the first English translation of the letters of the philosopher priest, Marsilio Ficino, who helped to shape the Renaissance worldview. This body of work constitutes a crucial attempt at intellectual and emotional synthesis. Ficino strives to combine in a system at once harmonious and formally coherent three great strands of doctrine or speculation: Platonism, Christianity and that exceedingly rich current of hermetic, 'magical' or cabalistic lore which underlies much of Renaissance culture. 'His principal correspondent in England was the Oxford Reformer John Colet, friend and colleague of More and Erasmus, and the most distinguished theologian of his day, and through Colet Ficino’s thought reached Spenser and Sidney, Marlowe, Donne, Milton, Shakespeare, and the English literary renaissance as a whole.'" -Shepherd-Wallin Publishers, 1997
