Remembering Charles T. Davis

Barolini, Teodolinda

Charles Davis, President of the Dante Society of America from 1991 to 1997, died on April 10, 1998. His first book, Dante and the Idea of Rome (1957), is a classic of Dante scholarship, but his many important essays on medieval Italy and Italian political theorists and historians, some collected in Dante's Italy (1984), have also changed and enriched our views of fourteenth-century Florence and Italy. What follows are a collection of thoughts about Charles from friends and colleagues, beginning with those who knew him longest.
