Short Notices the Somerset Wedding', and `"Fortune's darling, king's content": The Duke of Buckingham as Gift Problem'. These are followed by a short epilogue that very succinctly concludes the book, drawing attention to the paradoxes associated with the giving and receiving of gifts in the English Renaissance royal courts of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This is a book for serious scholars of Early Modern English Literature, anthropology, history and politics. It deserves to be in all university libraries. Lorna G. Barrow Department of History The University of Sydney Silvas, Anna M., Macrina the Younger, Philosopher of God (Medieval Women: Texts and Contexts, 22), Turnhout, Brepols, 2008; hardback; pp. xiii, 262; 1 map; R.R.P. 60.00; ISBN 9782503523903. In publishing her book, Macrina the Younger, Philosopher of God, in Brepols' splendid `Medieval Women, Texts and Contexts' series, Anna M. Silvas has, as she sets out in her Preface, revived the good work of Gregory of Nyssa that is, making Macrina's life known so that it would not remain `veiled in silence'. This edition with commentary fulfils Silvas' undertaking beautifully the quality of the scholarship is in keeping with her earlier volume, Jutta and Hildegard: the Biographical Sources.
