Companion to the Worlds of the Renaissance by Guido Ruggiero
Book DescriptionThis volume brings together some of the most exciting renaissance scholars to suggest new ways of thinking about the period and to set a new series of agendas for Renaissance scholarship. * Overturns the idea that it was a period of European cultural triumph and highlights the negative as well as the positive. * Looks at the Renaissance from a world, as opposed to just European, perspective. * Views the Renaissance from perspectives other than just the cultural elite. * Gender, sex, violence, and cultural history are integrated into the analysis.
