Download Description
Rich in its detailed account of the arts, fashions, manners, and thought of one of the eras in human history, this brilliant panorama of the Renaissance life is also a thorough examination of the nature of civilization and of our place within it.

Inside Flap Copy
Published in 1860, Burckhardt?s great work redefined our sense of the European past, wholly reinterpreting what has since been known simply as the Italian Renaissance. With unsurpassed erudition, Burckhardt illuminates a world of artistic and cultural ferment, innovation, and discovery; of revived humanism; of fierce tensions between church and empire; and of the birth of both the modern state and the modern individual. The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy remains the single most important and influential account of this crucial moment in the history of the West.
