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.

The Renaissance was a period in European history marking the transition from the Middle Ages to Modernity and covering the 15th and 16th centuries. In addition to the standard periodization, proponents of a long Renaissance put its beginning in the 14th century and its end in the 17th century

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

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.

Burke's `The Renaissance' is an historical primer with a twist. This is a short historiographical study that covers the usual Renaissance topics (politics, war, art, politics, religion, money, and politics) but is organized around an unconventional interpretation: namely, that the Renaissance was not strictly an Italian phenomenon, nor was it a clean break with the medieval past. Burke's interpretation (not entirely his, not entirely original) is that the Renaissance was more a `movement' than a `period'--an "attempt to revive antiquity" in art, politics, science, etc. As a result, suggests Burke, "almost every other characteristic attributed to the Renaissance can be found in the Middle Ages, to which it is so often contrasted" (p. 57, 2nd ed). In short, Burke downplays the traditional interpretation (begun over 150 years ago with Jacob Burckhardt) that the Renaissance heralded the rise of the individual and of reason (in a word, modernity) following a millennium of Dark Age stultification.

Burke is the author of the very readable `The Italian Renaissance' (a solid introduction to this `movement'), as well as the superb introductory essay to the Penguin edition of Jacob Burckhardt's classic `The Civilization of the Renaissance in Italy'. 'The Renaissance' discussed here is a mere 80-odd pages; for a book this brief, which requires a clarity obtained not by length but by focus, he is the right scholar for the job. For that reason this work is useful as a first step, or a refresher, to the larger world of Renaissance scholarship; it offers the professional and amateur student of history an assessment of scholarly interpretations of the period (or `movement', whichever you prefer), as well as an alternate view of the significance of the Renaissance.
