About this book
Challenges the traditional view of a single Renaissance, and proposes that this was a vibrant cultural period when Western and Eastern cultures mixed to great mutual benefit.
Provides a wide-ranging exploration of the Renaissance, seeing the period as a time of unprecedented intellectual excitement and cultural experimentation and interaction on a global scale. This book guides the reader through the key issues that defined the period, from art, architecture, and literature, to advances in science, trade and travel.
