Description
At the age of ten, Thomas Platter walked barefoot and alone out of the hills of the Valais and into the glorious turbulence of the sixteenth century. He wandered Western Europe until a chance encounter sparked a stunning humanist conversion, propelling him from illiterate pauper to esteemed professor, printer, and patriarch.

From a wealth of autobiographical writings, Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie reconstructs the life of Platter and the lives of his sons as well. They experienced the gradual close of the Renaissance, the sharp upheaval of the Reformation, and the advent of a robust new bourgeoisie.
