Description

Contemporaries in Europe from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century saw the Renaissance as a crucial time of change, and ever since then most historians have agreed that this period marked a decisive watershed in the transition from the medieval to the modern world. The nature of this transformation, however, has been consistently and keenly debated since the first signs of the Renaissance emerged in late-medieval Italy.

This collection follows current historical thought on the movement by returning to the concepts and terminology used by Renaissance contemporaries themselves – signalling a powerful revival of the fourteenth, fifteenth and sixteenth centuries’ interpretation that the Renaissance was essentially the rebirth of classical antiquity.
