From the Inside Flap:

In this vigorous and provocative collection the concept of the Renaissance is interrogated through the work of scholars who have supported or queried the ideas formulated in Jacob Burckhardt's classic study The Civilization of Renaissance in Italy, or developed alternative interpretations.

The questions posed concentrate on the themes of the source and dispersal of the Renaissance. Is there a unified concept of the Renaissance, and is it a cultural phenomenon or an historical period? How distinctive were the philosophical and artistic developments of the Renaissance, and what factors determined the reception of Renaissance culture in particular areas and disciplines? To what extent did the Renaissance mediate tradition or notions of authority and to what extent did it transform or challenege them?

The Reader addresses the themes of humanism, structures of authority, and levels of culture among different social orders and between men and women. And it examines what Burckhardt's 'discovery of the individual' really meant for the construction of self in the late medieval and early modern context.

Keith Whitlock is Staff Tutor and Lecturer in Literature at the Open University.

This volume is part of a five-book series accompanying The Open University course The Renaissance in Europe.
