Lives of the Twin Brothers: Juán and Alfonso de Valdés

Overview

In this biography of the Valdes twins, Juan and Alfonso, Edward Boehmer captures the life of one of Italy’s preeminent reformers (Juan) and the long-time advisor of Emperor Charles V (Alfonso). These two brothers worked from both behind the scenes and on center stage inside the most powerful political institutions of the sixteenth-century. Boehmer’s work is essential reading for those studying the Valdes twin’s work and anyone who wants to understand the political nuances of the Inquisition and Reformation.
