The Oxford Handbook of the Baroque

John D. Lyons

Oxford Handbooks

  • A uniquely interdisciplinary and global look at the Baroque that brings together 40 distinguished scholars, critics, and musicians from different countries and fields of research.
  • The book extends the concept of "Baroque" far beyond the visual arts and music, exploring its link to philosophy, science, religion, and literature.
  • The first large-scale treatment of the Baroque that emphasizes the role of religious difference, technological innovation, the practical implications of mechanistic philosophy, colonization, and new practices of self-cultivation.
