A Renaissance Man Tells Us How to Be the Perfect Woman…

Butterfly BLUE VIOLET Front Cover

During the Renaissance, people sought to enjoy their time on earth instead of focusing on the Church’s promise of everlasting life. During this time (five-hundred-years-ago, give or take a hundred years), women experienced growing equality. They were leaders of countries, they served as political envoys and they excelled socially, influencing the great thinkers of the day. So a well-known Renaissance man wrote a letter describing the ideal woman. She was to have an in-depth understanding of the founders of the Church and familiarity with authors of antiquity. She was to be well-versed in music and when she looked into the heavens, she was expected to know what she was looking at astronomically. She was expected to be graceful and a good communicator and of course… a charming hostess.
