The Rosicrucian
Enlightenment
‘Brilliant analysis of events, movements, relationships
and consequences. Her book is compulsive reading, and
forces the reader back not only to alternative accounts
of early seventeenth-century movements, which seem
superficial, but to Dr Yates’s other books.’
Asa Briggs
‘No one has done more than she to recreate, from
unexpected material, the intellectual life of past ages. It
is Dr Yates’ great achievement to identify the ideas and,
by delicate scholarship and profound study of symbol-
ism, to provide them with a pedigree and a home. A
brilliant and exciting book.’
Hugh Trevor-Roper, Sunday Times
‘No scholar in recent times has done more to open up
our picture of intellectual life in the post-Renaissance
period than Frances Yates.’
