Range of the Lute

I have been trying some of the early pieces on this site. Does anyone here know the range of the lute (modern guitar from low E to high E)? I figure with all the strings it had the range must have been more than the modern guitar.

I found out that there was many different styles of lutes, so there were different ranges depending on the style.

Here is a section of the Wikipedia lute article that describes the tuning conventions of various lute types:
