With unsurpassed erudition, he illuminates a world of artistic & cultural ferment, innovation & discovery- of revived humanism- of fierce tensions between church & empire- & of the birth of both the modern state & individual. The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy remains the single most influential account of this crucial moment in the history of the West.ForewordPart 1: The State as a Work of ArtPart 2: The Development of the IndividualPart 3: The Revival of AntiquityPart 4: The Discovery of the World & of ManPart 5: Society & FestivalsPart 6: Morality & ReligionAppendix: The Civilization of the Renaissance Illustrated byMonuments of ArtNotes on the PlatesIndex
