Summary
"The Renaissance in Italy continues to exercise a powerful hold on the popular imagination and on scholarly enquiry. This Companion presents a lively, interdisciplinary and current approach to the period that extends in Italy from the turn of the fourteenth century through the latter decades of the sixteenth. Addressed to students, scholars and non-specialists, it introduces the richly varied materials and phenomena as well as the different methodologies through which the Renaissance is studied today in both the English-speaking world and in Italy. The chapters are organised around axes of humanism, historiography and cultural production, and cover many areas including literature, science, music, religion, education, technology, artistic production and economics. The diffusion of the Renaissance throughout Italian territories is emphasised. Overall, the Companion provides an essential overview of a period that witnessed both a significant revalidation of the classical past and the development of new, vernacular and increasingly secular values"--
