Shop on Barnes & Noble


The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy is a classic interpretation of one of the most vibrant periods of human history, providing information and analysis for the scholar and a spell-binding introduction for the generalist. This single volume covers and uncovers the political, spiritual, artistic and social history of the Italian Renaissance. The work is divided into six parts: Part 1 - The State as a Work of Art; Part 2 - The Development of the Individual; Part 3 - The Revival of Antiquity; Part 4 - The Discovery of the World and of Man; Part 5 - Society and Festivals; Part 6 - Morality and Religion. Middlemore's translation does justice to Burckhardt's brilliant mind.
