about this item
A Short History of the Renaissance in Europe is a new and beautifully illustrated edition of The Renaissance in Europe, previously published by Laurence King Publishing. Readers will learn not only about the Renaissance, but also about the problem of cultural renewal: why it happens, why its energies are momentous, and how it changes everything all around it. Features include "Focus" sections that expand on individual topics such as popes and cardinals, childbirth and childrearing, and the origins of opera; "Voices" sections that offer readers the opportunity to engage with primary sources on topics such as death and consolation and the duties of a wife; timelines; suggested readings; and a full glossary.
