Gifts in Return: Essays in Honour of Charles Dempsey

This volume brings together new scholarship in Italian art and culture from the thirteenth to the eighteenth centuries first presented during April and May 2007 at two conferences celebrating Charles Dempsey on his retirement from teaching at The Johns Hopkins University. The authors represented here – many, among the most noted scholars in their fields – address a wide range of issues including patronage, style, iconography, reception, textual sources, and cultural context. This book is an important new contribution to the scholarly literature, and will draw a wide readership of both advanced students and scholars from a variety of disciplines within the Humanities.

Gifts in Return is a rich and richly varied volume; as such, it represents a splendid homage to the range, depth, and transformative power of the scholarship of Charles Dempsey.” 
- Stuart Lingo, Associate Professor of Art History, University of Washington

Melinda Schlitt is Professor of Art History and William E. Edel Professor of Humanities at Dickinson College. Her research focuses  on art and criticism of the Italian Renaissance, with emphasis on the relationship between literary and visual culture.
