Burke's succinct study of the "Renaissance" is an ideal starting point for students of Western history. The role of European states other that Italy was also more integral than many historians believed.
Burke's succinct study of the "Renaissance" is an ideal starting point for students of Western history. In less than seventy pages the respected historian decomposed the myth of the Renaissance and instead proposed a more realistic vision. The difference between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, as Burke argued, is exaggerated. In general a must-read for both scholars and beginners.
As it develops the series will comprise focused works of wide contextual range and intellectual ambition.

Studies in European History. By (author) P. Burke. In this study Peter Burke distances himself from the traditional interpretation of the Renaissance as essentially Italian, self-consciously modern and easily separable from the Middle Ages. He emphasises the survival of medieval traditions and the process of the creative adaptation of classical forms and values to their new cultural and social contexts in Italy and elsewhere in Europe. The story is carried down to the seventeenth century and the diffusion and disintegration of what had once been a coherent movement.

During the Renaissance, great advances occurred in geography, astronomy, chemistry, physics, mathematics, manufacturing, anatomy and engineering. The rediscovery of ancient scientific texts was accelerated after the Fall of Constantinople in 1453, and the invention of printing democratized learning and allowed a faster propagation of new ideas. But, at least in its initial period, some see the Renaissance as one of scientific backwardness.

The Renaissance’ is a term that refers to flowering of human culture brought about by the rediscovery of Greek and Roman civilisation; chiefly in 15th century Italy, though Pater argues that this definition can be expanded. The Bishop of Oxford specifically preached against the book’s ‘neo-pagan’ character. The Renaissance animated not just every aspect of Wilde’s work, but his desire to make his life into a work of art; ‘to burn always with this hard, gemlike flame, to maintain this ecstasy is success in life’, as the Conclusion urges.
