Books were, however, lent to other monasteries and even to the secular public against security. In this sense, the monasteries to some extent performed the function of public libraries. who wrote a famous book in praise of books, Philobiblon (The Love of Books; first printed in Cologne, 1473). The rich library of Lorenzo the Magnificent, grandson of Cosimo and an even greater patron of learning and the arts, also became a public library. It was opened in 1571 in a fine building designed by Michelangelo and still exists as the Biblioteca Laurenziana (though in 1808 it was amalgamated with the Marciana to form the Biblioteca Medicea-Laurenziana ).

Saw many like this in a small library gallery in Italy. The book and seller were great.

I travel in Europe a lot, and while I am not a student of theology or religious art, I find both very interesting. I have always found the art regarding the devil to be some of the most heartfelt, visceral work, and I was excited to find this book. It lived up to my expectations, with beautiful pictures and a deep, well-reasoned analysis of the symbolism involved that took into account the conditions and beliefs of the times. I found myself involved and interested, and was well-educated by the time I was done with it. However, I wasn't finished with it at the end; I had to give up early. This is because near the end, Lorenzi goes into the devil in goldsmithing. While this was another prominent religious artform, it became too technical, with too many names and periods to keep track of. If it hadn't been for this last section, the book would have recieved five stars from me.
The book is still a fascinating read, and well worth your money. There aren't many books to be found that focus so effectively on the devil in art, and this is a good one.
