Abstract

Romola (1862-3) by George Eliot, pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans, can be considered as a kind of fresco, representing a phase of civilisation that includes elements drawn from Greek and Roman culture as well as Christian thought and belief. Romola is best read not as a historical novel, with an emphasis on fiction and narrative, but as an exploration of the differing elements at play in the humanist culture of Renaissance Italy.
