Description: Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2011. 24cm., pbk., 312pp. Summary: This well-known anthology covers every element of life in the Italian peninsula during the Renaissance. Beginning with medieval Italy in the late thirteenth century and ending in the sixteenth century, The Civilization of the Italian Renaissance is designed to introduce students to the richness and complexity of the period. The book is divided into chapters that focus on different aspects of life in Renaissance Italy. Chapters on the classical heritage provide students and instructors with the tools to examine the ancient sources so often cited by Renaissance thinkers, and a chapter on Dante and his time provides a transition to the Renaissance from the culture of the Middle Ages. The readings in the final chapter assess the decline of Renaissance principles and institutions in Italy. Throughout, sources and individuals are discussed in introductory or biographical paragraphs to help students engage with the material. This edition includes a new chapter on Dante and medieval Italy, new selections on warfare, and additional readings on education, Florence, humanism, the Church, and the later Renaissance. The introductions to the readings are fully revised, and an essay on reading historical documents is now appended.
