"Complementary approaches to an important era in European history. The topically organized Almanac offers an ample overview describing the social, political, scientific, and religious environment that led to the Renaissance and Reformation...The Saaris' Renaissance will be a top choice for student researchers, particularly those in need of primary-source materials." -- School Library Journal (Febraury 2003)

"The text is well written and precise in all volumes. Vocabulary is well defined, either by parentheses in the body of the article or by accompanying glossaries. Sidebars provide additional information and biographical material that supplement the text. Suggestions are given for research projects and activities, and dated Web sites are listed for further information. An affordable, quality reference for school and public libraries as a resource for reports and projects, this set provides a vivid, sometimes chilling glimpse of the people who actually lived in this brilliant and turbulent historical period." -- VOYA (June 2003)


"...There are concerns here...some of the literary giants (e.g., Dante, Boccaccio, Petrach) do not get the attention they deserve...factual errors..." -- ARBA


"The editors of Renaissance and Reformation have strived toward and succeeded in making a time of long ago more accessible to today's middle- and junior-high-school students...School and public libraries will find that this resource provides good information on its topic." -- Booklist (December 2002)
