Perhaps the single most revolutionary aspect of the Renaissance was the re-emergence of the gods and goddesses of antiquity. This book surveys this phenomenon and takes the story from the Renaissance to the Baroque. Each chapter focuses on a particular god and recounts the tales about that deity, as they were re-created by artists.
