The Renaissance in Europe: A Reader

The Renaissance in Europe: A Reader


How important was the Renaissance in the development of Western civilization? To what extent did the Renaissance mediate or challenge tradition and notions of authority? What factors determined the reception of Renaissance culture in particular areas and particular disciplines? The Renaissance in Europe: A Reader, a stimulating book, is a collection of seminal readings by eminent scholars who explore aspects of the Renaissance from various perspectives, assessing current knowledge and expounding their own views.

The Renaissance in Europe: A Reader addresses the themes of humanism, structures of authority, and levels of culture among different social orders and between men and women. And it supports or queries ideas expressed in Jacob Burckhardt’s classic 1860 study of the Renaissance, speculating in particular on what his “discovery of the individual” really meant for the construction of self in the late medieval/early modern context. The Renaissance in Europe: A Reader is an essential reference for any student of the Renaissance.
