Description: This series of three course texts and two anthologies, published in association with the Open University, under the title The Renaissance: A Cultural Enquiry, explores the Renaissance from the perspectives of history, literature, drama, religion, the history of art, philosophy, music, and political thought. Three of the books are published now; two more volumes will be published in the fall of 2000. Together the books provide students and general readers with an unprecedented analysis of this vital period.

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? This 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 authors address the themes of humanism, structures of authority, and levels of culture among different social orders and between men and women. And they support or query 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. This collection is an essential reference for any student of the Renaissance.
